Chris Jepsen, from the Orange County Historical blog, asked me to share information about an upcoming event featuring Jack Lindquist, the first President of Disneyland. This sounds like a fantastic event and I urge our readers on the West Coast to attend.
Did you ever want to know what made Disneyland tick over the past 56 years? I'll bet the first president of Disneyland, Jack Lindquist, could tell you. Disney Legend Lindquist will be the speaker and guest of honor at the Oct. 13th meeting of the Orange County Historical Society. He will speak, take questions from the audience, and sell and sign his memoir, In Service to the Mouse, with book proceeds benefiting OCHS. The program will begin at 7:30pm, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St., in Orange. The program is open to the public, free, and will include light refreshments.
Head over and check out the rest of the information on the event.
