Join us Friday, August 5, 7:30 am, in person at the Watershed Center for this special outdoor Chautaugua style meeting. We will not have a speaker, instead we will have an extended around the room update and networking.

What is a Chautauqua, you might ask? Here’s what Wikipedia says: “Early Chautauquas (/ʃəˈtɔːkwə/ shə-TAW-kwə) were an adult education and social movement in the United States, highly popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chautauqua assemblies expanded and spread throughout rural America until the mid-1920s. The Chautauqua brought entertainment and culture for the whole community, with speakers, teachers, musicians, showmen, preachers, and specialists of the day.[1] Former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt was quoted as saying that Chautauqua is “the most American thing in America.”[2]”

In the Chautauqua spirit, please come prepared to share updates, items for teaching and learning, perhaps even a story or to. To be clear, we are all the speakers.
Watershed Center is located at 2400 E Valley Water Mill Road, Springfield MO
