Adults Can Fall In Love With Real H-Town

Adults now have the opportunity to fall in love with The Real H-Town.

Susan Lamb, creator and coordinator of the highly successful Lovin’ The Real H-Town Camp for youth is now opening up an opportunity for adults to get to know Hesston a little better.

“I’d had a lot of requests and questions about why not do it for adults,” said Lamb.

The program is partially sponsored by the City of Hesston’s Community Service Grant.  Registration will be limited to 15 adults.  Forms for the program are avalabie at the Hesston Area Senior Center. Registration forms and the $25 fee must be submitted by April 18 at the senior center. 

Unlike the youth camps, Lamb said the focus will be primarily on the participating businesses and sponsors.

“I don’t plan to do much history because, I would imagine, most of the people who would be interested in this would know more than I do.  And, they are able to access that knowledge more easily than students and do that research on their own,” she said.

Lamb said the tours and information being presented to adults will be “things they are not able to access easily without someone opening up that opportunity.”

Lamb said the group will be touring the USD 460 facilities, one of Hesston’s newest businesses, The Nest at 112, and be touring Excel Industries. 

“It’s an experimental, test the waters program. If it goes well and we have a waiting list, I’d be willing to throw another week of this in,” she said.

Lamb said during the two-day session she is looking forward to getting to know residents and hearing their stories.

“I think I will be learning just as much from them as they are from this experience,” she said.
