Posing with Johnny

A group of employees from nearby Sandy Beaver Insurance in Lisbon decided on Friday to walk across the town square to have their photograph taken with wooden statue of Johnny Appleseed, which they intended to post on the agency’s Facebook page. The insurance agency is one of the many businesses and individuals that help sponsor the the Johnny Appleseed Festival, which begins today. Workers were busy Friday closing streets, bringing in food trucks, setting up tents and assembling amusement rides for the two-day event. At the top of the photograph, from left, are Sharon Barnes, Glenn McMillan, Katelyn Moore, Kristin Stockman and Cathy Johnson. Below them are Jennifer Young (and her dog Morey) and Becky Holmes.
