Disneyland, Fox Fullerton, Costa Mesa, etc.

Here are two more early 1970s Disneyland photos from the collection of my old pal Mike Tucker. The first is from the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse, and the second is from Main Street U.S.A.
The Fox Fullerton Theatre restoration/preservation folks are holding a "work party" on June 21 and also a big gala fundraiser called "Hollywood in Fullerton" on June 21 at 7pm. So whether you're a jeans person or a formal person, they've got an event for you.
The Costa Mesa Historical Society's speaker on June 29 will be Phil Brigandi, talking about his most recent book, Orange County Place Names, A to Z.
The mark their 30th anniversary, the Diocese of Orange has issued a book about their history entitled, Learning, Loving Living Our Faith. From what I've heard, it's a bit like Disney's Disneyland: Then, Now & Forever, in that it's definitely the company line, but still includes some good stuff. Copies are available for $25 through local parishes.

Chris: Your comparison of the OC Diocese's history to Disney's book ain't fair to the Mouse--after all, they didn't cover up for pedophiles or Stalin-ize their past.
