Lisa has returned from her ToonFest adventure last week and has tons of audio to share with you all – thankfully, Myra Katz, from the radio show “This American Walt” (published by Disney Podcast International) is on hand to open and close the show.
This episode is quite long, but honestly, there was a WEALTH of audio material gathered that we wanted to share. We think some of the pics below will clarify this weeks story….
Next, our travelers meet for breakfast in Marceline and await the 10 o’clock parade!
That evening, our group was fortunate to attend the 2008 “Plantear” Tree Planting Ceremony at the Dreaming tree on the Disney Homestead Property.
The Mistress of Ceremonies was Kaye Malin, who introduces artist Dale Varner, who dedicated his Disneyland Model to the Walt Disney Museum.
Next, you will hear remarks from Chris Taylor, a long time Marceline resident and Disney/Malin Family neighbor. And one of the Disney Ambassadors, Sarah Bishop (I hope I spelled that correctly) was on hand to dedicate “The Son of the Dreaming Tree”, a sapling grown with soil and water from the World!
This audio love letter to Marceline concludes with the group chowing down at the local mexican joint and finding out more about what inspired documentarians Andy N (the boy) and Sara, his fiancée, to start a project about Marceline.
Special thanks to the whole ToonFest group: Trace, Wayne, Doug, Andie (the girl), Heather (the hostess with the mostess – and a bitchin’ Tiki Room in the basement of her house!), Mike and Sherry, Jeff W. and Inez at the Museum and all the folks of Marceline for welcoming us – and even whipping up a few “Dusty Millers” sunday afternoon!
