You may not know him, but you certainly have seen him.
He’s the guy who is all over the community. Big events and small, he covers them all. He can be seen with his trusty camera, tripod and bag, and sometimes in the past he even took his cat on his adventures. He wears faded jeans cinched around his minuscule waist. A crisp shirt completes the outfit unless he throws on a well-worn vest or jacket. He sports a greying beard and mustache along with a beloved hat. If it is a little worse for wear, his western hat will always be perched on his head in a recognizable trademark. The hat will be straw in the heat of summer, then warm felt in the winter months. He drive a pickup truck and has no intentions of grandeur.
His name is Al Disbro and he has become a fixture, recognizable to all in our community for his love of recording the moments and experiences that occur regularly in our lives. His generosity is legend and his good humor sustains him as he never meets a stranger.
