ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Canton's Own Alice, Patricia Gallagher
Not positive, but I believe this is 1951. The movie, Alice in Wonderland, was premiering at the PALACE THEATRE in Canton, Ohio. My sister, Patty, won a contest that made her Alice in Wonderland for the day. I was only 3, so I didn't understand the excitement of her being carried around downtown Canton that day. It had to be a thrilling experience. If you look closely behind Patty's crown, you can see Mom in a big hat with a smile to match. I know she had to be SO proud.
For all my Kopka cousins, I see your Mom is in the photo, too. Aunt Beulah was the BEST!! Patrick and I talked of her a lot.
