Michael & Barbara Agrati (20411)
New Jersey State Directors and Secretary
We are back home in New Jersey after being gone all winter. I would like to say we avoided all the cold back home in New Jersey, but it sure was cold down south this year. While we were away we picked up our new 2022 Dutch Star 3717 at RV One in Tampa. After a rough start with an incomplete software update from Freightliner, we finally were able to hit the road with our new coach. We love the ride, the color choices we made and the floor plan. We made the right decision. RV One is an outstanding dealership that went well beyond what we expected, and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchase.
Our State Rally was May 5-8 with 12 coaches in attendance. It was held in beautiful Cape May, New Jersey. Our rally coincided with the nearby United States Coast Guard Training Center’s open house which we all were able to attend and was enjoyed by all. As a special treat we were able to take those who were interested on a side trip to see the restoration of a 36’ search and rescue boat which had been stationed at the Great Egg Coast Guard Station in Ocean City, New Jersey. Before the 36’ was decommissioned it was involved in many rescue and lifesaving missions. The restoration is being sponsored by the Cape May Maritime Museum and is taking place in a barn in Cape May, New Jersey by volunteers that come from all over to see it through to its completion.
