Well, I think there are going to be two gatherings this year. One at the museum and on at the Kirkley Hotel in Lynchburg. Carolyn Grinnell is in charge of the one in Lynchburg. She is president of the fan club. You can contact her via Facebook. The museum website doesn't have any information about the reunion but here is the website for contact information: walton-mountain.org/
Thanks Cindy....I haven't been on the forum in quite some time but I was seeing the Facebook posts about Richard Thomas coming to the museum anniversary and contemplating going. I thought the fan club already had a 45th anniversary this past March...I couldn't attend due to my father-in-law's passing but I really wanted to go. I sent Carolyn a FB friend request....so the fan club is having a get-together in October even though there was already a 45th reunion this year??
Carolyn asked me to take down the announcement about the fan club reunion because plans have changed. You are right. The museum is hosting a 25th anniversary of the opening of The Waltons Museum, and Richard Thomas is scheduled to be there as the special guest. Carolyn will give an official statement soon, but as it stands now, the event at the museum in Schuyler is the only reunion planned for this October. Keep watching Facebook and the earlhamnerstoryteller.com website for more info.
Thanks for the info Brenda....I can understand Carolyn's decision. It's a lot of work and she already did the event in March. I probably won't make the trek cross-country just for the museum event....if I was closer it would be easier but it's expensive coming from Arizona. Would love to meet Richard of course, I was so disappointed when he canceled out of the 40th reunion in 2012.
