Event-packed Saturday in the Tree City

GREENSBURG – Saturday looks to be an extremely busy day in Greensburg and throughout the county, with numerous major community events taking place, many of them at the same time.

The largest of the events will be the On Eagle’s Wings 5K walk/run at St. Mary’s School at 8 a.m. The 5K seeks to remember Don and Barb Horan and Stephen and Denise Butz, who were killed in a plane crash last December. At least 1,000 people are expected to take part in the walk, with 100 additional volunteers and another possible 200 participants who have not registered.

Due to the large number of parked cars expected, additional parking will be available at Greensburg High School, the Knights of St. John on Wilder Street and St. Mary’s Church. Participants will be shuttled to St. Mary’s School on Hunter-Robbins Way for the 5K.

The On Eagle’s Wings 5K will serve as the official kickoff for the annual St. Mary’s Festival at the school, an event that both the Horans and the Butzes helped to organize each year. The Saturday portion of the festival has been dubbed “Adult Night” and will feature food, casino-style games, a beer garden, live entertainment and a raffle. The festival will be open from 5:30 to 11 p.m. Saturday. The St. Mary’s festival will continue on Sunday with “Family Day” from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Greensburg-Decatur County Library will be holding its 20th anniversary celebration Saturday as well, from noon to 4 p.m. at the library. The anniversary celebration will include a bounce house, a chance to “dunk-a-librarian” in a dunk tank, food in the form of hot dogs, chips, and drink, snacks of cotton candy and popcorn, a variety of games and a selection of prizes. Registration for the event is preferred and is available on the library’s website, www.greensburglibrary.org.
