Disney-mania Monday, July 30, 2007

Disneyana buff Ric Catron poses beside a model of the Congo Queen at his home in Gresham. The boat is part of the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland, his favorite attraction at the theme park.

Ric is a big Disney fan. Such a big fan, in fact, that he's a member of the National Fantasy Fan Club. And not just a member, he's the President! Or at least, the co-president of the Cascade Chapter.

The club is "committed to preserving and sharing the rich legacy of Walt Disney." To be clear, that is Disney the man, not the company.

You can read more about Catron and his fascination with Disneyana in Portrait 2007, recently published by The Outlook and the Sandy Post.
