Now that people in Douglas County Senior Services' Adult Day Program have refurnished a miniature house, they would like to sell it to raise money for an electronic keyboard.
A drawing for the Victorian-style dollhouse, which has three stories and stands nearly 3 feet tall, will be at noon Feb. 14 at the Senior Center, 745 Vt. People who would like a ticket to participate in the giveaway are asked to make a donation of $1.
Terri Richmond, director of the Adult Day Program, said clients, staff and volunteers with the program all pitched in to spruce up the house, which wasn't quite finished when it was donated to the Senior Center. The house got new wallpaper, new carpet, new furniture and a new paint job. The outside of the house is sea-foam green with cream and peach trim.
"It's also very nicely decorated for Christmas on the first floor," Richmond said, adding that the house includes a Christmas tree complete with presents.
The dollhouse is on display at the Senior Center lobby from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Richmond said the Adult Day Program provides activities for frail, elderly and disabled adults.
"That enables care-givers to get out and do their own activities," she said.
