Once again this is quiet season for the NE Chapter.  Our members are either keeping warm at home or taking advantage of the warmer climates somewhere across our beautiful country!   We did have a “mini-get-together” here at River Bend, near Fort Myers, FL.  Burgers and hot dogs provided by the chapter and as usual, members brought some terrific sides to share.  I can only take people’s word for this part, as I headed home to PA unexpectedly for very sick daughter and grandchildren.  Our son in law, in the Air Force, has been away for over a month on a “mission” so the least I could do was get home to help out.  I selfishly got to spend time with our grand kids tho!

So I left Jack in charge, aided by Brenda and James Anderson, Jennifer Goergen, Nancy and Bill Kukurkin, and many more ACA members who live here, plus we had many travel to join in the fun,  Shea’s, Wendy Anderson, Johnny Spacek and Ken Browning, Booth’s…..  I know I left a lot of you out, but thanks to all for coming, helping, and making what is becoming an annual event so much fun!  We were also thrilled to have Sue and Jay Beigle stop by for a few days on their way north.  Have not seen them in a while so that was a treat!

Plans are in the works for a NE rally in Bath, NY September at Hickory Hill Family Camping Resort.  September 14-18th.  Nightly rate is $31.79/night, also available 3 days early or post rally.  There is a lot to do in the Finger Lake region, wine tasting, boating, Corning Glass.  More details as time gets closer.

Be sure to include the Keys in your Fall travel plans.  The NE is hosting the Keys Regional rally this year at Sunshine Key RV Resort, on Big Pine Key.  Dates are November 9-13, 2017.  Who doesn’t want to be in the Keys in November??  Beat the crowds and heat!  Registration for this rally can be found online at:

As always, keep your eyes open, you never know who you will run into along your journey, and be safe.
