Come join us alongside the lives of Widower Sheriff
Andy and his son Opie in fictional Mayberry, North
Carolina. “While there is virtually no crimes to
solve, most of Andy’s time is spent philosophizing
and calming down his cousin, Deputy Barney.”
Laughs are good, but Andy’s life lessons are even
better. Andy teaches us to listen and evaluate
carefully before reacting. Good advice for all.
Life lessons from the Andy Griffith Show
Everyone has value and something to offer.
Everyone has something to teach us if we will just listen.
Remember, winning is not everything, but being a good sport is always important.
Remember, the love of family and community was, and always will be the most important lesson

one of the most recognizable styles of modern art.”
You will need black ink
sharpies for this club.

prepared, written script.
