Orange County is getting its own yearbook.

"Orange County at the Year 2000," which will contain photos of local business and civic leaders and histories of their organizations, is slated to appear next year. The Orange County Public Library will house the finished album, and CD-ROM versions will go to local schools, museums and libraries.

About 2,000 businesses and organizations are expected to participate. The project is sponsored by the Orange County Business Council and underwritten by Elson-Alexandre, a 53-year-old publishing and photography company in Buena Park. Elson-Alexandre is also taking photos of executives at participating businesses and civic groups at no charge.

"This will leave a real legacy and allow future generations to see what Orange County was like," Elson-Alexandre vice president Robin Rader said.
