Doll News Spring 2015 - (Page 176)

RECEIVING TWO COPIES OF UFDC DOLL NEWS? If you are one of those UFDC households that receives duplicate copies of DOLL NEWS, why not donate the extra to your local library? Some of our members have been doing this for years, and have reported that their local libraries have become UFDC members as a direct result. Another great way to spread the word is to take your extra copy to your doctor or dentist's office along with you to your appointment. While you wait, you can catch up on something you might have missed, then leave DOLL NEWS behind for others to enjoy!
