Cathy Culbertson and her daughter Elizabeth adopted three dummies at convention: Cone-An, Lester the Owl, and Suzi Swine. Cathy and Elizabeth went the extra mile for a friend, though. Instead of putting their names on all the adoption cards, they asked that one be listed as adopted by Kyle Scribner. Kyle attends the convention most years, but was unable to be here last summer. Is that so thoughtful? Thanks, Cathy & Elizabeth, for your generosity and kindness!
Cone-An was made in 1990 by Chris Donahoe. He used it for years at our convention to help people here at the museum know when the buses were arriving and departing. Chris donated this Cone-an in 2016 as it was showing signs of wear and tear, and then made another to use. Chris is an invaluable part of the hospitality committee at our convention each year.
