Wasn’t it great to be able to get out there rallying again with your Newmar family! We all believe that this was another great International Rally. A total of 461 units gathered at the West Virginia State Fairgrounds in Lewisburg for the weeklong event.
We had a full lineup of interesting seminars by our vendors, suppliers, Newmar teams and Klub members. Also scheduled were several by the local Historical Society, Master Gardeners and the Greenbrier Resort including a chocolate making demonstration with samples! We enjoyed great entertainment by Dwight Icenhower an Elvis Impersonator, Rarely Herd shared their country, gospel and bluegrass roots and Spartan sponsored and brought in Sassafras another great group to close us out.
Again we were thrilled by the Newmar Techs, Service Writers and Parts Department in attendance. They completed over 300 service requests during the week.
This year we opened our vendor’s building and Klub store during the opening weekend so you could get a jump start on our activity filled rally week. This was appreciated by our members and also the vendors were happy with this change.
We had great catered meals and an ice cream social. We give special thanks to our Fulltimers Chapter, for making lots of popcorn and lemonade for us to snack on.
This year we had two different charities for our members to support in the Lewisburg area during the rally. Both of these groups work with children which is a cause that is near and dear to all our hearts. We collected a total of $12,000 for the Children’s Home Society as well as many donations of bedding, luggage and personal items for the kids displaced from their families. We also collected close to 300 stuffed animals for the local First Responders to give to kids during their emergency calls to offer a small amount of comfort. We thank you so much for your generous giving.
We want to thank our displaying dealer National Indoor RV Centers for their display of the all-new 2022 units. NIRVC also held an open house complete with finger foods, a band and plenty of raffle giveaways.
And above all we want to thank all our volunteers! Without your time and effort on behalf of the Klub, we would never have been able to pull off such a successful rally!
