Sonya Smith of the Orange County Register reported that Gene Autry, a well known actor and the former owner of the Anaheim Angels for many years will be the nest star placed in front of the Disneyland Resort on Monday.
Is it the 6th star or the 7th?... They placed the "Taormina Family" star next to the Yorba Family star on January 15th of this year, but never had a ceremony... (Located about 10 yards south of the Yorba Family Star).
Gene Autry, the actor and former Angel baseball team owner, will be added to the Anaheim/Orange County Walk of Stars on Monday.
Autry's widow, Jackie, will attend the 2 p.m. ceremony on Harbor Boulevard just outside Disneyland's main gate.
Autry is the sixth entity to be honored on the Walk of Stars. Past honorees are: Disney; Carl and Margaret Karcher, founder of the Carl's Jr. Restaurant chain; Henry and Susan Samueli, owners of the Anaheim Ducks; and the Yorba family.
But Gene Autry is clearly worthy of a star, and looking forward to the ceremony Monday afternoon!
(And by the way, the "Taormina" star story is interesting due to the lack of a ceremony, but by NO means is it a slight to the family, as they have done a lot of good things for Orange County!)
