Its in our mission statement to serve the community and to serve youth and spread the arts and humanities to youth in the area, Wentworth says. We see the positive outcome; kids in low-income areas are lacking opportunities to be outdoors and go on trips and do leadership-building.
Although the Wild West Fest is primarily geared toward these kids, there are plenty of ways in which the general public can join the fun. The June 9 Kick-Off Celebration and BBQ in Town Park is open to the public (the grub costs $5). So is the artist meet-and-greet reception with 2009 Wild West Fest featured artist Wayne McKenzie on Wednesday, as well as the big shoot-em-up on Saturday, June 13, when Heritage Days hits Main Street.
