Sally The Rag Doll’s Adventure – A Story by Margaret Gerlach

Happy 150 years to Cranford!  To honor the 150th Anniversary of our incredible town, we invite you and your families to read and enjoy the story of Sally, the Rag Doll.  This children’s story, written and illustrated by Margaret Gerlach, President of the Cranford Historical Society, is an imaginary tale and celebration through the eyes of a rag doll.  The story follows Sally throughout the township of Cranford as the town prepares to celebrate its 150th Anniversary.  Sally’s adventure shows us how much the town has changed and evolved in its 150 years since being incorporated on March 14, 1871.
