The Greensburg College Club will feature “Korea, Then and Now” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday in the auditorium of Greensburg Salem Senior High School.
The club's Travelogue Series, now its 58th year, raises money for scholarships for students from Greensburg Salem and Hempfield Area High Schools.
Raising money for the scholarships is one of the main goals of the club, which was founded in 1918.
One of the its early speakers was Lowell Thomas, an American writer, broadcaster and traveler who hit upon the novel idea of the travelogue, movies about faraway places, during a visit to Alaska before World War I.
Barbara Hillis, who serves as chairwoman of the Greensburg College Club travelogue series, said it is hoped that Monday's presentation will attract veterans of the Korean War.
“Korea, Then and Now” was created by travelogue producer Buddy Hatton, who will trace the country's development over the past 50 years.
He got his start in show business as a teen in San Franciso, where he created and produced his own radio and television show, which featured another teen, Johnny Mathis, as a regular guest, according to his website.
He was a television show host in Canada and a radio host for several stations in San Francisco.

The next installment of Greensburg's Travelogue Series will be “The Heart of San Francisco” with Sandy Mortimer on April 8.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
