Lon Cross is installed as Western Area President at the FMCA convention in Springfield MA this week!
At the present time, we have 148 people signed up to attend the “All Aboard For Albany” rally in Albany, Oregon. The Northwest area has always supported the Western area rally in Indio, so I am very proud that we are supporting the NWA with our attendance at their rally.
Plus, I know many of you are also volunteering at the rally.
There will be a Western area “Meet & Greet” meeting on Friday, June 24, in the dining hall of the Willamette Hall, from 10:00 a.m. To 11:00 a.m. Please try to attend. At this meeting we will discuss both Western area & FMCA business.
Dick Gibbs, WEA President
Could not say it better!
“Freedom is one of the benefits of recreation vehicle travel – the freedom to hit the open road and to travel the highways and byways while taking along the comforts of home. Members of Family Motor Coach Association – a Cincinnati-based organization for owners of motorhomes – will embrace this freedom in early August as they point their RVs toward Massachusetts, a state that played a pivotal role in U.S. history as it relates to the quest for freedom.”

The Dolphins, a National RV interest chapter has elected to move to Western Area affiliation. “A proposal … was presented to move our FMCA Chapter from International (INTO) to Western. After a lively discussion the club voted to accept the proposal as our membership feels a closer affiliation with the Western Area.”
And Dave Barr the President of The Dolphins chapter reports: “I received a call today (11/3/15) from The President of FMCA Western Area to welcome the Dolphin Club into the FMCA Western Area. He is looking forward to meeting all of our Dolphin Club Members at upcoming rally’s. Our next Western Area rally will be at Indio, California.”
