    This is really for the old time DISers and Prodigy group who moved here many many years back. I was reading the thread about things that only OKW owners would know and it made me think of Clarry Trice. I remember years back Disney ( I think it was Disney) planted a tree in Clarry's memory at OKW. Does anyone know if the tree is still there and if it is marked.

    Was just sitting here and taking a trip down memory lane and it got me thinking...

    I have Emily Trice's email address. I'd be happy to write and ask her. I visited the tree not long after it was planted, but we weren't members then so I don't remember where it was.

    The tree was planted in memory of Clarry Trice, one of DVC's early members. Clarry was very active on Prodigy's Disney bbs.

    Yes Clarry was a an early DVC member and was very active on a Disney Forum back in the earlier days of the internet on the Prodigy system. He influenced a lot of people's interest in DVC early on with his posts and enthusiasm. I remember when a Prodigy member(s) lobbied for some kind of memorial for Clarry after his passing. We are going this summer and thought maybe I would find his tree.
