My Mayberry Power Point Presentation

One of my favorite things to do is giving my Mayberry Power Point Presentation,  My presentation is approximately 45 minutes long.  I take my audiences on a journey.  I take people back to a much simpler and slower place called Mayberry.  Using old photos from my childhood growing up in the very small village of Dorchester, Wisconsin in the 1950's and '60's, I show how my early years were similar to life in Mayberry in many ways.  My audiences learn how and why I have such a passion for the classic TV show "The Andy Griffith Show".  I share my experiences as "The Mayberry Guru" and I try to help them forget all the problems and challenges of our modern hectic society by taking them back to Mayberry.

I reintroduce people to all those wonderful people who are so much a part of life in Mayberry.  I use video and audio clips to demonstrate some of the hilarity and love that is found in that make believe quintessential place called Mayberry.

I have given my presentation close to 90 times  all over the state of Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota.  I have spoken at churches,schools, nursing homes, conference, conventions, seminars, and all types of gatherings.

The one thing I always hear is this, "I wish we could live like they did in Mayberry."  Mayberry may not be a real place, but the values and lessons each episode of The Andy Griffith Show portrays, is very much real.

My Two New Deputies

Welcome to my website.  My name is Ken Anderson and I live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  I created this website because I have a passion for the classic television show "The Andy Griffith Show".  I am the author of the book Mayberry Reflections the Early Years.  I spend much of my time traveling to Classic Car Shows and parades.  I also spend time speaking to groups through the use of a 45 minute power point presentation that I have developed.  I own a 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 Replica Mayberry Squad Car and I dress in an almost exact replica Deputy Barney Fife uniform.  I am a retired teacher of 35 years.
