WOW, what a weekend! Our August 24th-25th northeast trip to Marceline Missouri proved to be a great weekend adventure. After a couple of missed turns and a u-turn, a tradition for our club, we arrived at Marceline, the boyhood home of Walt Disney. Our hungry group first headed to Ma Vic’s Corner Cafe for a great lunch. After a tour of Main Street USA and a little shopping, we settled in at the Disney Museum.

The Museum is located in the old Marceline Train Station and is filled with Disney and Marceline history. You could spend most of the day there but we were only able to stay a couple of hours. Much of the Disney theme parks got their basis from Walt’s time in Marceline. Walt Disney’s home is privately owned and we were not able to tour the home but we were able to view the family barn that has been nicely preserved.

The caravan then headed 30 miles south to Macon Missouri for our stay at the Super 8. After checking in, we held our own "happy hour” on the motel’s patio. Dinner was next with a trip to A.J’s restaurant. Our plans were to attend the demolition derby that was held in Macon that evening. Since we did not finish dinner until later than scheduled, we opted out of the derby and gathered sat one of the motel rooms for our second happy hour.

On Sunday morn, we gathered at the Star 63 Café for a getaway breakfast that was the finale of a great weekend.

We thank Dan Kelly for all of his work of planning and guiding our group on this late summer adventure. Great job!
