Six years ago, the tourism division of the Cynthiana Renaissance committee needed a project while waiting to promote the ventures of the sub-committees.
After a lengthy brain storming session, I mentioned that the granddaughter of Johnny Gruelle, the creator of Raggedy Ann and Andy, had recently visited Cynthiana. You know the rest.
After five successful Raggedy Ann Festivals, the sixth one is nearly complete. I have been asked why I have done this for so long, especially since this is an exceptionally busy time during the year for me. The answer, in short, is the people.
