Handy Home There‘s a happy ending to the story of a doll that became orphaned during the Santa Claus parade in 2005. During the parade, the Handy Circle Promotions Society(now called Handy Circle Resource Society) folks handed out numerous toys, donated by the Bibles for Missions store, to children along the route. At the end of the parade, a Handy Circle volunteer noticed that one of the dolls had been abandoned on a pole near city hall. One of her stuffed legs was missing. “We all said we could not leave the doll there, so volunteer Shirley Byman hopped out of the van and retrieved the doll,” said office manager Lorraine Young, who took the doll to her father-in-law, Ford Young, who is a wood carver. Young carved a wooden leg from a piece of pine and with his friend, Carl Zobel, built the strawberry doll a wheelchair out of plywood. Now the 20-inch doll has a permanent home at handy Circle, where it has become a mascot for people with disabilities. She looks great, and even has a happy smile on her face,” said Lorraine Young. Since the doll doesn’t have a name (the doll’s name is Destiny 2015 this is an archived article from 2005) Lorraine Young is hoping someone in the community can come up with an appropriate one. There will be a small a small prize for the person. Jan. 30 is the deadline to enter by calling 563-1852, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the office at No. 101 490 Quebec Street in the Kiwanis Centre. This year Handy Circle celebrates its 20th anniversary in Prince George. “It was established July 30, 1985 as a non-profit society to promote awareness of the needs and skills of those with disabilities,” said director Vivienne Candy. “Our mission is to advocate for improved quality of life for people with disabilities.” Handy Circle works with persons with disabilities, providing information and referrals, and training them in computer and office skills. Last year they received donations of computers, which has allowed them to increase training in basic office skills, computer, websites and more. They also welcome people from the community who want to learn or upgrade computer skills. A big Thank-you to Shirley Byman for typing the article from the Citizen Call 563-1852 for more information.
