G.E.A.R. 2023 – we need your help

We need your help in finding Exhibitors, Seminar Presenters and Vendors for our October 2023 event. Please take a moment to look over this document and print out a copy (or several) to keep in your RV. When you go to Perry in March to attend the FMCA National Convention, hand a couple out to vendors, exhibitors and seminar speakers that you would like to see at our Great Eastern Area Rally. You may know of others who might not be at Perry for one reason or another, or don’t even realize that there are FMCA Area Rallies where they could vend, exhibit or present. With your help, this October could be the GREATEST Eastern Area Rally:

Dogwood Chapter Celebrates 25 years !!!

But, some may ask – What is Dogwood? Dogwood is an FMCA chapter founded in Portsmouth, VA in 1996 and going strong ever since. We currently have over 50 RV families, primarily from Virginia but also from DE, WV, PA, MD, NC, FL, ME and MS. Check out more about them on the Find a Chapter area of FMCA.com

On June 6, 1996 a new FMCA chapter was formed, bylaws written and friendships grew.  Now, 25 years later they celebrated with an anniversary rally.  There are some photos, compliments of David Meyer, attached.  These include a photo of the 25th Anniversary Certificate and congratulatory letter from FMCA president, Jon Walker, a photo of Steve Czarsty, one of Rob handing Ed Herbert the check and a group membership photo from the rally.  Additional photos will be posted on their blog-site <here>
