Museum unveils bridal doll display

by Lucie Roy

On Wednesday afternoon volunteers Murray Knight, Yvon LeBlanc and Shirley Rosichuk, along with Musee Morinville Museum Operations Attendant Donna Garrett, set up a doll bridal display in time for the wedding season.

Garrett said the four dolls were donated by Morinville resident Lil Boddez and were a collection created by Artist Phil Tumminio and titled From This Day Forward.

The dolls feature the same bridal gown through four generations, each bride tailoring the dress to be fashionable for her own time. The dolls are Lisa from the 1990s, 1960 Beth, 1930 Betty and 1900s Elizabeth.

The Museum also has a new display of phones through the decades.

The museum is open Wednesday to Saturday from noon until 5 p.m.
