Personal Notes:
Our Technical Services Manager at Fort Vancouver Regional Library Yvonne Iverson gave this rocking chair, that she had since she was a little girl, to Sydney when she was a year old. Sydney loved it and practically rocked it off it's rockers. Now we have four grandaughters and Sydney and Ashley have both had their turn at rocking in this chair until they both got too big for it. I now keep it at my house since Stella and Caitlin are close to the same age and size and they can share the rocking chair at grandma and grandpas house. This chair will be handed down in generations to come and has been, and will continue to be a piece of their history and memorable to them all. Thank you, Yvonne!
