1.      Back to Mayberry begins tonight (Friday) at 6:00 p.m.  Meet for a pot luck supper then sit back and watch “Danny Meets Andy Griffith”.  This was first aired as an episode of Make Room for Daddy starring Danny Thomas in February 1960.

Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.
