  1. Thank you for providing the Backlot with Randy Turner and for welcoming us. Jake and I are excited to help with the 2nd annual festival. Where can we purchase “Mayberry Comes to Scottsburg” shirts?

    1. Hi Stacy! Thank you for coming and for your willingness to help with the festival. It was a real joy to meet you both! T-shirts will be available at the festival. Before we make the bulk order we’ll take requests from team members for the number and sizes they want. We’ll distribute them to the team when they arrive. More info on those will be coming out in the next few weeks. You’ve been added to the mailing list and will be getting an update in the mail in the next few days. Thanks again to you both for becoming part of or Mayberry Family!
