eport R Spring 2015 T At Your Service! he "At Your Service" ice cream social has become a favorite event for many convention attendees. It allows members to meet each other and enjoy a sweet treat in an informal and relaxed atmosphere before the busy convention schedule begins. This year the Fundraising Committee will be your official hosts at this open house and will be teaming up with the Collections Oversight Committee to encourage attendees to make a contribution in support of our newly revamped museum. Although UFDC's museum will boast a new and expanded look and will include some incredible new doll donations not seen previously, the needs of the museum will not end when convention does. Our Wish List is not complete and many of our prized dolls are in need of better shoes, suitable clothes, appropriate wigs or have other conservation and long term preservation needs. To those who have made contributions to the Museum through the "Adopt a Doll" program and other donations, the Fundraising Committee and the Collections Oversight Committee sincerely thanks you. If you have not made a contribution or would like to donate again please consider giving when you attend the "At Your Service" Open House. Amounts large and small are all appreciated! Members of both Committees will be on hand to welcome you. As an added incentive, our marvelous and generous but anonymous donor from last year has offered once more to match funds up to $10,000! Of course you do not have to wait to contribute till then and for those of you who will not be able to attend convention it is easy to give. Just visit the UFDC website ( and click on the donation page. Checks can also be mailed to the office (10900 N. Pomona Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri, 64153) or call the office (816-891-7040) if you would like to make a donation by credit card. Please specify your donation is for the museum. Book Offer T he impish face with big side glancing eyes beguiles many doll collectors and antiques aficionados. Author Anita Ladensack has researched an in-depth history of the Googly dolls crafting a handsome book with nearly 324 color photographs. Thanks to Anita's generosity these books are being offered at a very reduced price of $20.00 each to UFDC members. 100% of all sales will go to support UFDC. These can be ordered from the UFDC Shop on-line or through the office (ask for Kae). DOLL NEWS * UFDC.ORG 13 http://www.UFDC.ORG
