Happy Birthday Mr. President

By George I remember when we made much more of a fuss over George Washington's Birthday!
There were pageants and parades and all the kids would dress up and the adults would dance.

Did you know that Conway played a small part among the many monuments and mementos (including one of Washington's sets of dentures above) celebrating our first President? In Conway, Washington was a doll! Actually both he and Martha were part of the doll collection commissioned by and sold through the Yield House.


The kits were sold with the parts to assemble, but you had to make your own costumes, so there are many different variations that can be found for sale now online through Ebay, Etsy and so on.

Kind of a "do it yourself" activity.
