I wanted to invite everyone who’s able to make plans to visit Mt. Airy, NC the weekend of 11-13 (Friday-Sunday) July 2014.
Jan and I are, once again, heading to Mt. Airy for a weekend of Mayberry fun!
There’s nothing “BIG” planned other than on Saturday the 12th at 2pm we’ll have the chance to attend “Professor Brower’s Lecture Series” at The Andy Griffith Museum. Professor Neal Brower will be covering The Andy Griffith Show episode “Back to Nature.” For any that don’t know, Neal Brower is the author of Mayberry 101 and taught “The Andy Griffith Show: An In-depth Study” at Community Colleges throughout North Carolina for many years. There’s no charge for the class if you’ve paid the fee for touring the museum. For more info, visit the website at http://www.andygriffithmuseum.
I *DO* plan to set up times for folks to get together and visit with one another during the weekend but I haven’t set exact times yet for that.
The main thing I want to do is get together over at the Mayberry Motor Inn gazebo on Friday and Saturday evenings (I’ve already checked in with Alma about doing this again this year) for some good visiting time..maybe some pizza…..and watching episodes of The Andy Griffith Show together.
If you’re interested, go ahead and make reservations at the Mayberry Motor Inn – Phone 336-786-4109 – (they have rooms if you hurry). If it gets full, there are other places to stay nearby in Mt. Airy. You can still come to the gazebo for fun and fellowship even if you can’t stay at the Motor Inn but they dig you so you be nice and dig them back.
So far Kenneth “Otis” Junkin has confirmed he’s is planning on being there along with a few other folks from the Two Chairs No Waiting podcast listeners. Hopefully we’ll be joined by WBMUTBB Digest folks and we’ll have a Mayberry time of things!
If you’re going to try and make it, please e-mail me directly (Floyd@iMayberry.com) so I can have some type of head count.
I hope you’ll considering making the trip and we’ll have our own small version of a Mayberry weekend in Mt. Airy.
