This is your last chance to reserve your spot for this weekend’s Kansas cleanup project. Final numbers are needed for lodging. A few are driving their own vehicles, while others are riding in a van generously loaned to us by the LaHarpe Christian Church (Thank you!).
Here is some information you’ll need to know:
The church van LEAVES the LaHarpe Christian Church parking lot at 6am on the dot. Please arrive a few minutes early for loading.
The group will be checking into the King Solomon Christian Camp in Solomon, Kansas during a very brief stop at approximately 1-1:30pm. If you’re driving separate, please do not arrive at the camp beforehand without giving at least 24 hrs notice to the camp.
Please bring $10/night per person for lodging costs for the use of the facility.
The camp has separate dorm rooms for guys and for girls. These rooms have bunk-beds with mattresses, but you’ll need to BRING BEDDING (SHEETS, BLANKETS, AND PILLOWS)AND TOWELS, along with your usual TOILETRIES.
We will be eating at local restaurants during this brief trip, so prepare your budget accordingly.
Be preapared to get dirty. We’d strongly recommend bringing gloves and long pants. You’re welcome to bring tools like hammers, prybars, chainsaws, etc, but these things are obviously not required.
GPS will do NOTHING for you at this particular location (other than sending you on a wild goose chase, 10 miles away from the correct location. Ask Roy how he knows). If you’d like to put Solomon Kansas in your GPS as a destination to point you in the right direction from the start, that will be fine, but Solomon exit on 70 is where you’ll want to turn it off. The camp (lodging) is located 3 1/2 miles North of the Solomon exit off of 70. The Deweese residence (job site) is located 4.2 miles North of the Solomon exit off of 70, or approximately a mile North of the camp.
If you have not already notified us of your intent to help, please do so. We look forward to seeing you soon!
