Port Angeles doll show an adventure on Saturday

PORT ANGELES — Just Dolls of Washington Doll Club has added an element to its annual doll show, scheduled this year from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

In honor of the Brazilian-themed grand prize doll, the club will take donations to help save sloth habitat in the Central and South American rain forest. Each of the first 30 people through the door will receive a stuffed sloth.

The 2017 Promise of Spring Doll Show will be at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. Admission is $2.

One door prize ticket will be given in exchange for bringing a donated canned food item to the show to benefit the Port Angeles Food Bank.

Grand prize tickets are $1. The grand prize this year is the American Girl Doll of the Year 2016, Lea Clark.

Lea is dressed for an adventure to Brazil, where her big brother, Zac, is studying the rain forest. She comes with a trousseau of handmade clothing and accessories.

The proceeds from the grand prize drawing will benefit the Peninsula Home Fund and the World Wildlife Fund’s Adopt-a-Sloth program. A jar for contributions to help save sloth habitat will be available near the ticket counter.

The theme of the show is “Dolly Adventures.” Doll club members and vendors will be in themed costumes.

Many local and out-of-area vendors will be on hand, offering everything from antique and modern dolls and bears to doll furniture and accessories.

Numerous door prize drawings for dolls, bears and accessories will be held throughout the day, with prizes offered by the doll club and vendors.

Homemade soup and sandwiches will be available for purchase at the show.

Club members have written an introduction to sloth habitat protection in the imagined words of a sloth dubbed Sebastiano.

“I love to hang out, quite literally, and spend most of my time in the canopies of the forests ‘pruning’ the trees to keep them healthy. I even help to fertilize the trees,” the introduction says.

“Rain forests help to regulate our climate and keep clean the very air we breathe,” the introduction says in a plea to help preserve the sloth species.

“I admit I’m slower than a telephone call to tech support, but I get the job done eventually. Who says gratification has to be instant?”
