Membership Dues Increasing to $33 Per Year on Sept. 1, 2012


Starting on September 1st, 2012, new member family dues for the Disneyana Fan Club will increase to $33 per year. The Disneyana Fan Club does it's best to not increase our dues very often, but in going back to a print newsletter and with costs of printing and postage continuing to rise, it is necessary to have this increase go into effect to keep revenues and expenses in line. Current members will be able to keep paying the current rate of $29 per year until January 1st, 2013, when their dues will also go up to $33. Members who currently expire after the 1st of the year can add an another year at the current rate by renewing before January 1st.

Convention Update!

Hello, this is David Ransom, your friendly neighborhood Webmaster from Disneyana Fan Club. I would like to report that so far, our Convention is absolutely amazing! Our Guest Speakers are terrific! I can't believe how much I have been enjoying the presentations! Our Club raised over $7,000 for Ryman Arts at our "Goofy's Anniversary Party Dinner" on Thursday night. Bill Farmer thoroughly entertained us with his many impressions, including doing the last few Presidents of the U.S. All of the Guest Speakers on Friday blew me away. I was especially glued to Marty Sklar's presentation on EPCOT! I was also happy to hear and later meet Animator and Disney Legend Honoree Glen Keane! I'm still excited about what transpired on Friday, but now it is Saturday at almost 4AM, so I had better go to bed so that I can make Robert Tieman's Presentation at 9:15AM this morning. The lineup for today's presentations looks explosive, so I need to rest up in preparation!

How Would You Like To Help Terri Hardin Create A Masterpiece?

For Immediate Release
Imagine for a moment that you had the talent and time to do detailed sculpture of any Disney character. Which one would it be? What would it be doing? Now imagine that a well known artist would be willing to do the sculpting for you. You can stop imagining because Terri Hardin is planning to start a new line of Disney sculptures and she wants your help deciding what to create. She does not want to just redo images that have already been done, you know, the same characters in the same poses. Terri is looking to do characters that haven’t been sculpted before as well as those that have. The key is to have them in poses that have not been done, poses that show the true character, the very essence of what makes that character special.

This is the blue sky phase of the project, so let your imagination soar. What would you buy if it only was available? Why would you prefer it over something that has already been done? These will be extremely limited editions. That allows for some customization. Would you want that option? If so, what would your dream sculpture have that could be customized? The more details you can provide, the better your chance of seeing your idea come life.

Terri already has a few ideas for characters but they need more details if they are going to come to life. She is considering doing the Fairy Godmother, Jiminy Cricket and the Headless Horseman but does not know what pose will give them the WOW factor she is wanting.

Send your ideas to Terri at: tiggerterri@gmail.com

Oh, if you submit your ideas and one of them is selected, you will receive an autographed picture of Terri with the finished piece.

Garner Holt Productions Make Generous Donation to Ryman Arts

The Disneyana Fan Club’s visit to Garner Holt Productions, a special ticketed event in conjunction with the DFC’s 2011 Disneyanamania Convention, had an especially Disneyesque happy ending. Mr. Holt graciously offered to reimburse all the visit expenses (exclusive of the transportation costs) in the form of a donation to Ryman Arts, the DFC’s primary West Coast charity.

The approximately 90-minute visit on July 12, 2011 was personally led by Mr. Holt. Afterward, there was a catered luncheon with a specially decorated cake for dessert. Also attending the luncheon were five former Disney Imagineers; they are now employed by Garner Holt and were happy to answer questions.

In an informal ceremony at the DFC’s Show and Sale on Sunday, January 15, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Resort Hotel in Garden Grove, CA, Mr. Holt fulfilled his promise by presenting a check for $1316 to Michelle Lee, Development and Communications Manager at Ryman Arts.

Garner Holt Productions is a world leader in creating animatronics, show actions systems, interactive exhibits, and special effects for entertainment companies and theme parks around the globe. (www.garnerholt.com) The Walt Disney Company is a major client.

Ryman Arts continues the work of legendary artist Herbert Dickens Ryman (1910-1989). Herb Ryman is best known for drawing the original concept for Disneyland for Walt Disney in 1954. Herb strongly believed in supporting young artists and teaching them the fundamentals of drawing. Ryman Arts supports his legacy of artistic accomplishment with a program that is completely free, with participants selected solely on the basis of ability and commitment. The program has become highly competitive and has graduated more than 2500 students. (www.ryman.org) The Disneyana Fan Club is proud to support Ryman Arts as one of its favored charities.
