2015 ANNUAL Chautauqua Sept. 26, 2015

(2015): "Chautauqua celebrates flight" - Sat. Sept. 26, 2015

 A daylong celebration of FLIGHT through human space flight, DaVinci's flying machines, ancient Mayan dances of flight, WWII pilots, and flight demonstrations of both drones and birds of prey.  We also honored Waxahachie native Bessie Coleman, first female African American pilot, with a re-enactment of her life.  Keynote speaker was Fred Haise, Apollo 13 astronaut, telling the "Lessons Learned from the Ill-Fated Apollo 13 Mission."
