Welcoming and entertaining more than 4,000 visitors over two days last year, the first-ever Mayberry in the Midwest proved to be a rousing success. Expecting more visitors in its second year, organizers want to do even more as they have added another day, more ticketed events and additional free activities to the zany fun that made last year’s festival so popular.
The quiet Hendricks County seat of Danville will transform again into the iconic 1960s fictional community that was home to Andy, Opie, Aunt Bee and Barney for the Mayberry in the Midwest festival May 15-17. Former cast members, amazing tribute artists and even Don Knotts’ real-life daughter, Karen Knotts, will take visitors on a journey inside their televisions to experience life in Mayberry.
Hendricks College Network will host its College and Career Fair on Thursday, Feb. 26 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex in Danville, providing kids and adults from Hendricks County and surrounding areas an opportunity to explore more than 100 schools and resources in one location.

Members of the Plainfield High School Key Club worked with Plainfield Kiwanis Club over the holidays to raise $4075.88 for Riley Children's Hospital!
Each year, Plainfield Kiwanis Club invites Santa to Plainfield Plaza to greet children in anticipation of Christmas and all its wonder. Kiwanis is the parent and partner club of the PHS Key Club. Student-members sign up for times to assist with pictures and organizing little ones waiting to whisper their wishes to the Big Man in the Red Suit.
Allie Ridenour, a member of the PHS club, describes the event as one of her favorite service activities.
“This is an annual event the club looks forward to every year,” says co-sponsor Kellie Jacobs. “The Christmas visit to the Plaza is a family tradition many Key Club members remember from their own childhoods, and it is special to be able to be a part of making those memories for other families.”

While researching a blog post for Visit Hendricks County recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with the superintendent of Hendricks County Parks & Recreation, William Roche.
During our conversation, he enlightened me about some programs that Hendricks County Parks & Rec offers for schools and for Scouts.
While I was aware that they offer programs for Scouts, William explained that they have revamped their Scouting program.
I was completely clueless as to the programs offered to Hendricks County schools.
It all seemed like information that Villagers might like to know about, so pull up a chair.
