Fans Unite At Granville Museum

With a population of maybe 300, tiny Granville may triple or quadruple its size when it opens the door to its new Mayberry-I Love Lucy Museum on Saturday, June 13.

The big day will star actor-musician Keith Thibodeaux, who portrayed Little Ricky, the son of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, on “I Love Lucy,” and also was Johnny Paul, Opie Taylor’s best pal, on “The Andy Griffith Show.” Also headlining is LeRoy Mack McNees, dobro player for The Country Boys, a.k.a. The Kentucky Colonels, who appeared in two episodes of “The Andy Griffith Show” during its first season.
