LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Glamp Out accolades

To the Editor:

Kudos to Marion County Economic Development director Teresa Huffman. She performed a stellar job organizing and hosting the first Marion County Park and Lake Glamp Out over the June 10 weekend.

I had the privilege of attending with my 1950 Thims camper. Have to say, your lake is a gem, and the campsite was perfect on a carpet of buffalo grass.

Our group toured your lovely city, shopped the antique stores, hospital thrift store (has to be the best one in Kansas), and had a lesson on campfire Dutch oven cooking. The best part of the function was meeting like-minded vintage camper ladies and sharing stories, tips, and ideas. An impromptu lesson, how to secure an awning in Kansas winds, from Ed across the road, was yet another highlight.

Again, hats off to Teresa; she did your county proud. I am looking forward to our next Marion County adventure.
