Herby Ham Activity Center was created from the vision of Herby Ham, who had tremendous heath issues throughout his life.
"To stay youthful, stay useful"
Herby's dream was to create a facility that would help adults do just that, where they could learn new skills, have a variety of activities, exercise, stay or get healthy, and make friends.
In 1990, HHAC became a reality opening on Main in Uvalde, Texas. The new facility, a 21,000 square feet complex, was completed in 2013 housing a swimming pool, exercise rooms, event facilities, meeting rooms, a wood shop and a gift shop.
Presently, over 500 people come through our doors each week for everything from water aerobics, game days, exercise classes, dance instruction, craft classes, wood shop, dances and rentals.
Events are held throughout Uvalde including our Farmers Market on the first and third Thursday of the month and Prayer in the Square held on the second Friday of each month. Both of these events are held in town square.
Herby Ham's philosophy was that busy hands and active, productive minds lead to better physical, mental and spiritual health and the Center embodies his vision. Anyone aged 18 and over may use the facility.
