Sit-in on our “History Chats” during the Greene County Fair
July 12 @ 11:00 am - July 13 @ 4:00 pm
For the fifth consecutive year, the Greene County Historical Society is presenting informal “History Chats” at the Greene County Fair in Jefferson.
Retired journalists Jerry Roberts and Chuck Offenburger are the hosts and co-moderators of the chats, which are conducted in our historical building on the fairgrounds. They interview a panel of people with expertise or vision on each of the topics, and the audience is welcome to ask questions, too. The chats are conducted as people sit in a circle of chairs.
Here are the days, times and topics for the history chats:
Friday, July 12
11 a.m. — Auction Barns of Greene County.
1 p.m. — Doug Rieder & Greene County Sports History.
3 p.m. — When Rock ‘n’ Roll Arrived in Greene County.
Saturday, July 13
11 a.m. — The Ku Klux Klan in Greene County.
1 p.m. — The 50-Year News Careers of Jerry Roberts & Chuck Offenburger (including the times they got fired), interviewed by Jefferson native Jack Lashier.
3 p.m. — The Future of Greene County.
And both days at 2 p.m. in our historical building, there’ll be free servings of “Hanaman’s Historic Homemade Ice Cream,” made by historical society board members Dale and Nancy Hanaman, of Rippey. Cookies, too.
It’s all free.
