I have known for a bit that my appearance at the Miami Township Branch of Clermont County Library in Milford, Ohio would not go forward on the originally scheduled date of April 25 due to the current situation with COVID-19. The libraries in Ohio are currently closed and at least that branch now knows they won’t reopen until September at the earliest.
Several of the major Mayberry events are still technically scheduled but I would think at least some will not go forward.
This current crisis which is negatively impacting Mayberry fans’ ability to gather together is especially unfortunate since this year marks the 60th anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show‘s debut. But as the adage states, “This, too, shall pass.” In the grand scheme, it is not important that we may have to celebrate later than we originally planned. The important thing is that we eventually have the opportunity to do so. And we will.
In the meantime, be well and keep spreading that Mayberry spirit even if only through social media. The world needs Mayberry now more than ever!
