Lots of grit and always a smile: Girl with spina bifida now has lots of presents too


OLIVIA — Addison Doyle has an ever-ready smile, lots of grit, spina bifida, and just a few days before her second birthday, more presents than she’s ever likely to see again at one time.

The presents came by the shopping cart load last Sunday afternoon.

 Her parents, Tom and Marci Doyle of Granite Falls, filled up shopping carts with $3,533.50 worth of merchandise in 2 minutes and 30 seconds at the ALCO store in Olivia.

It was all free, courtesy of the store.
