International FMCA Rally Perry Georgia 2019



 A Message from your President

PEACHY IN PERRY, that was the theme for the FMCA rally in Perry, Georgia the week of March 10 – 17, 2019. What a wonderful time we all had. The Carolina Pelicans were very well represented by 25 coaches.

Many of our chapter members volunteered for security and information at the rally. On Wednesday, March 13 we participated in a Chapter fair and had many FMCA members stop by our table and hopefully will join our chapter. Then on Thursday we had a Chapter Block party, wow, what a turnout, we had over 70 people stop by and chat with us about our chapter and enjoy the wonderful food we provided. Thanks to all who helped with the Chapter Fair and the Chapter Block Party

Seminars were great and our very own Andy and Ellyn Meshel held a seminar on two different days on dry camping, which had record breaking attendance.

Linda Kolfat was in charge of Security volunteers and Chris Holtzman was in charge of information volunteers and they both did an outstanding job.

Safe travels,

Dale West
