We remember those MICKEY MOUSE CLUB shows where cool kids sang and danced in dizzying Disney style.

Bonita Lynn Fields Elder, mouseketeer, who went on to sing and act, has died at the age of 68.

Somehow, I have those teens frozen in time; their music and innocence are woven into our collective memories. Why? Because we liked them.

 Elder’s gift of offering joy through entertainment remains with us always.
