The Pettis County Historical Society presented “The Titanic Remembered,” honoring the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden and final voyage, on Sunday, Oct. 28 at Nostalgia Vintage Apparel, 219 S. Ohio. The event was organized by PCHS members Charles Wise, Rhonda Chalfant and Byron Matson, who hosted the event.
The Titanic sank 100 years ago in mid-April after contacting an iceberg on its starboard side and now lies in 13,000 feet of water in the North Atlantic, southeast of Newfoundland. The bow and stern sections lie approximately 600 feet apart. The wreck of the Titanic was discovered in September 1985 by Dr. Robert Ballard.
The program concluded with refreshments served to the sold-out crowd who attended. The proceeds will help with the operational costs of the Pettis County Historical Society. Photos by Randy Kirby, Sedalia News Journal.
