  • Cynthiana..’The Little Town That Could’

    Last week I took a much need hiatus to Florida and it gave me time to let the entirety of The Walking Dead Day sink in.  

    Two months ago, I posted a Facebook post asking for Walking Dead super fans to help with a top secret project.  

    I’m not sure my friends quite knew what they were getting into, but they committed to the very end. 

    I can remember sitting in the Chamber at that first meeting, not really sure how big the event would be.

    This is no doubt one of the busiest times of the year.

    There is much to look forward to in the coming weeks. So before you complain that there is nothing to do in Cynthiana, check out some of the things coming our way.

    This weekend is something new and will bring some beautiful motorcycles to our streets.

    It’s a first-ever Bike Night, and is being offered as a precursor to Cynthiana’s Rod Run, which is the following weekend, Saturday, Aug. 27.

    Wow! What a fantastic weekend it was in Cynthiana. 

    Kudos to Tomi Clifford and her committee for pulling together The Walking Dead Day.  I hope everyone enjoyed seeing our streets full of visitors and zombies.  

    So many great events are happening in our small town and it is exciting!

    There’s entirely too much credit to be handed out, to entirely too many people, for the resounding success that was The Walking Dead Day, last Saturday.

    So, instead of making the mistake of mentioning anyone’s name, for fear of leaving out someone who is deserving, let’s just say “congratulations” to Cynthiana!

    Old Girl, you’re on your way back, if you ever left.

    So here we are in the countdown to The Walking Dead Day.

    How exciting for Cynthiana and Harrison County!

    If you are reading this, you have seen The Cynthiana Democrat’s souvenir edition.

    Always, always after something comes out in print, you either remember something that should have, would have, could have been included or even a mistake that needs clarified.

    It’s a great section of which I am very proud and excited for our staff who worked so diligently to make it happen.
