The Six and Seven-Eighths club meets monthly in Oxford to take a nostalgic trip down to the fishing hole. Members crowd onto seats and the floors to watch episodes of the black-and-white series from the 1960s.
"If you look past just the humor of these shows, each one does preach a sermon," said Cam Ford, an "Andy Griffith" fan and a Baptist minister. "'The Andy Griffith Show' is always based on love. The luckiest thing a man can have is friendship."
The Six and Seven-Eighth club is one more than 1,300 "Andy Griffith Show" Rerun Watchers' clubs nationwide – and 120 in North Carolina.
