     APVA Reception
Belinda H. Willis

On November 18th, after their regular meeting, the association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) were invited to a reception at the Museum at York Hall.  APVA has recently made a donation of $3,000 to offset the cost of a booklet that is being published about the Museum. (see photo at right)

Also at the reception, Peggy Turnage graciously agreed to display her paper doll collection of George Washington's family. (see photos at right)

Peggy, who is known for her ever present red, white and blue outfits, spent many hours dressing the paper dolls to accurately reflect period costumes.
