Coming in February: The Mayberry Social Club, featuring our chapter of TAGS Rerun Watchers Club, in the Andy Griffith Room at Berry's Seafood and Catfish House in Florence. Click on the link above.
The Back to Mayberry Retreat will return in the summer of 2016 as a one day event. We'll keep you posted. Thanks for your interest.
You, your family, and friends who love Mayberry and The Andy Griffith Show are cordially invited to attend our first annual Back to Mayberry Retreat, a charity event, at the beautiful Eagle Ridge Conference Center in Raymond, Mississippi on Friday, October 31st through Sunday, November 2nd. It will be a special time to step away from the rat race, "like the man in a hurry" and go back to a simpler place and time.
It promises to be a weekend to remember, with a long list of events which include: watching favorite episodes of The Andy Griffith Show on the big screen in The Grand Theater (auditorium); fun breakout sessions about TAGS all weekend long; Mayberry trivia games and other contests with prizes; a Saturday afternoon blue grass and Gospel music concert (featuring The Haley Creek Boys of Promise Land, Arkansas) and fish fry on the lakeside patio; a Sunday morning worship service featuring a Sunday School lesson from the Finding the Way Back to Mayberry Bible Study; some great gospel music and favorite hymns, some powerful preaching; great food from Aunt Bee's kitchen in the Bluebird Diner; evening music festivals (bring your own guitars, banjos, and French Harps); fishing, hiking, horseshoes, and checkers; a Friday morning golf tournament at Eagle Ridge Golf Course; a booth at Weaver's Department Store; a Saturday night visit from some of your friends from Mayberry Ministries; some good ole rest and relaxation; and much, much more. Stay on site or commute.
Your host for the weekend will be Rick Clarke, who for 18 years has played the role of Sheriff Andy Taylor in a stage version of the Andy Griffith Show for Mayberry Ministries. The group has performed more than 200 shows over the years and helped raise over $750,000 to share the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world.
It will be a unique gathering that you just don't want to miss. Everything Mayberry: Fun, food, fellowship, and Fife!
Can't come for the whole weekend? Then come early and stay late on Saturday. The one-day (Saturday-Only) ticket includes lunch and supper. There are also Evening Show Only tickets available for Friday and Saturday nights. So there are ticket options to meet every need.
It's a one of kind event. There ain't never been nothing like it! Be the first to attend a Back to Mayberry Retreat and bring some folks with you.
