“April has been designated as Crothersville History Month, and it is very fitting that we see portrayals of some of the people from our town’s past at this time,” CTP president Brenda Holzworth. “We are certain that those attending will enjoy this event as much as we are enjoying preparing for it.  We welcome the inclusion of the CHS Thespian Troupe in an event that emphasizes both history and theater arts.”

Dinner is being catered by volunteers, and will include tossed salad, grilled chicken breast, scalloped potatoes, green beans, assorted desserts, and drinks.

The Crothersville Historical and Cultural Arts Association is a non-profit group which depends on fundraisers and donations to maintain programs available to the citizens in and around Crothersville.
