A little back story: On May 5, 1984 the Truman Pageant was held in Lamar at the High School Football Stadium. Several local people participated in pageant that told the story of the birth of President Harry S Truman and the city of Lamar during the 1880's. The script was written by Randy Turner and the pageant was presented by Lamar Community Betterment.
