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 Stephen's Episcopal Church at 1820 County Road 540A, Lakeland, FL 33813, September through May unless otherwise announced.
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.
