Mary Ann Myers was out on the lawn of the Barbour County Courthouse at 9 a.m. Thursday morning, setting up her tent to sell crafts to patrons at the Blue and Gray Reunion throughout the weekend.

But this year, she's wheelchair-bound, and she and her husband have been putting in extra time to be ready for the festival.

"My hubby came up and he set our 10x20 tent up, so it was ready for this morning. By me being handicapped this year, he's had all the running to do, but it takes a lot of preparation. It usually takes up about three hours to set up," said Myers.

The Myers weren't the only people to have gotten an earlier start. Dorie's Concessions from Rock Cave in Upshur County was on site even earlier.

"Oh yeah, we started yesterday. We had to come in and set up, get everything level, and get everything set to where we could start serving today," said owner Dorie Gregory.

Gregory said their first day at the event was busier than most, and they like having the chance to meet their customers. Myers agreed, and said she looks forward to sharing her time and crafts with them.

"Being out with the public and enjoying them. If we do a craft, and they want to be shown how to do that craft, we're always willing to share with them," said Myers.

The reunion officially kicked off Thursday evening and wraps up on Sunday afternoon.
