As a doll collector, you can imagine how thrilled and delighted I was to learn that the Red Deer Advocate had acquired a Red Deer Advocate doll!
The doll will go to either our Red Deer Museum or the Red Deer Advocate to be displayed. Both are fine choices indeed.
The Advocate has shown a great sense of pride in its own and Red Deer’s history by bringing Pollyanna back to her original home.
I can only think of the families of Red Deer. My own history, our history.
How we have travelled through the Advocate’s doors, with our important family news, our history: wedding announcements, obituaries, etc.
Have you ever watched how many children are brought in the door with Mom and Dad on these occasions? Eyes wide at such a busy serious place.
Parents have important news to share. Mom and Dad are very busy crossing the T’s, dotting the I’s and getting everything just so.
I must confess I do like the thought of while Mom and Dad are busy, Pollyanna is displayed at her home: the Advocate.
While gazing down from her perch at a wonder-struck child, she whispers, “What is it dear? What important news have you come to tell me?”
The Advocate stated the doll owner had no daughters to leave her beloved doll to.
I think Helen Anderson just acquired a city full of daughters.
