Mark your calendars for Thursday May 2nd as Greensburg High School hosts its semi-annual Chautauqua, an amazing evening of guest speakers and musical performers from around the world. This event is inspired by the great traveling Chautauqua shows popular throughout the country a century ago. The shows celebrated the greatness within all of us, as performances ranged from poetry, lectures, theatrical performances, comedy, musical performances of many kinds, just to name a few. Nationally recognized names would combine with local talent. Decatur County saw its share of events as well, with such notable guests as William Jennings Bryan and Helen Keller.
