The Tropical Doll Study Club of Lakeland, Florida was founded by Jeanne Niswonger in 1977.
Meetings are held on the first Sunday of the month at Saint David's Church on Edgewood Drive in Lakeland, September through May.
As a Chapter of Region 9 of the United Federation of Doll Clubs, Inc, the club is active in support for various charities.
The highlight of each meeting is the program presented by members or an invited special guest.
Each year we choose a theme and design some of our programs around it.

The show is open from 10am 'til 4pm. The entry is $5 for adults and $1 for children 12 and under.
The drawings for the "BITTY BABY" and other helpers will take place at 3:00 pm.
