Glee and tea at Lyon Park
January 18, 2018 at 4:42 a.m.
Focusing on perfection, King Street School students Gianna Rende, Marisa Rachiele, age 8, and Charlotte Rachiele, 6, paint mugs to take home at the “My Doll and Me Tea,” a Port Chester/Rye Brook Girl Scouts scholarship fundraiser at the Girl Scout House in Lyon Park. The scholarship grants $1,000 for college to selected Girl Scouts who are active with the Scouts through their senior year.
