We wish to thank all the Happy Wanderers for their continued support of our efforts to revive the chapter. We are hoping that several of our members will be able to attend the ACA National Rally and look forward to meeting everyone. We continue to ENCOURAGE you to participate in all the FUN filled activities of the future and volunteer whenever you can.
UPDATES: We are happy to welcome the following new members; Dasan Maly and Nichole Wheeler. We are also pleased that Brian Diggins has accepted the Vice President position.
Unfortunately, we also have the sad news that Gene Adams passed away in May of this year. Gene will be missed and many members will remember Gene for his bacon cooking mornings. Our prayers go out for Rita and her family.

Happy Wanderers Chapter- History
The “Happy Wanderers” Chapter of American Coach Association was formed in 1998 to serve those RV Owners who share a common bond of traveling extensively throughout the year, we welcome members from all the US states and Canada. We share traveling adventures, have great diversity and a broad range of RV experience.
The purpose of the “Happy Wanderers Chapter” is to provide an added measure of camaraderie for those persons who may or may not belong to or do not always have the opportunity to participate with a Local Regional Chapter.
The “Happy Wanderers” include those who travel Full Time or travel between Winter and Summer locations, those who travel extensively and those RV Owners who desire to be part of a group with great diversity that is hospitable, friendly and welcomes everyone from any part of the country. After all, we are the only chapter with “HAPPY” in our name. The “Happy Wanderers” do not compete with other chapters for members; however, many of our members belonging to other chapters and enjoy the “Happy Wanderers” for our RV experience and FUN…FOOD & FELLOWSHIP.
With our diversity, we plan our “RENDEZVOUS” around Pre and/or Post Rallies at the ACA National, Regional & other Chapter Rallies.
Sincerely, Bill Makowski
