To kick-off the first day of summer, the Concordia Chamber of Commerce and Cloud County Tourism held a Sunset Viewing Dedication at Oil Well Hill on Wednesday, June 21st.

The evening included a Chamber Ribbon Cutting at the site, located at 1664 N. 70th Road, west of Concordia at Quail and 70th Road.

Susie Haver, Cloud County Tourism Director, hosted the viewing at her home. The evening's guests included Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe with the Kansas Sampler Foundation.

Penner and Rowe are the authors of the new "Kansas Guidebook 2 for Explorers," which made its debut at the Kansas Sampler Festival in May. The two signed copies of their book last night. The book features 4,500 entries and more than 1,600 pictures, including 515 incorporated cities in all 105 counties and 97 unincorporated spots in the road.

Other visitors Wednesday included members of the Kansas Explorers Club. The club aims to inspire, educate, and encourage the exploration and appreciation of Kansas...and have fun doing it.

The evening also consisted of a Cass-a-roll-a-rama, another word for potluck, and many activities for kids and families.
