Bob & Jane Hadley (16789)
Region Seven Directors
Greetings from Region Seven. It’s Happy Holiday Season for 2021/2022. Where has this year gone? Rally season for us this year is over.
We attended the New England States Rally in Connecticut. It was held at the beautiful property owned by the La Roses, chapter members of the New England Aires, in Canterbury, Connecticut. It was dry camping, and everyone accepted the challenge of boondocking, and all passed with flying colors. These Newmar coaches are the greatest! We were delighted to see George & Cathy Keith, past New England States Directors, at the rally. We took this opportunity at our Saturday night dinner to honor them and thank them for their commitment over the years as state directors. An enameled US flag was presented to them to hang in their new home as our way of saying thank you. We wish the Keith’s well, and we know we will see them at future rallies.
Next it was off to our Region Seven Rally in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. We had a great time enjoying all that Boothbay had to offer. We had 40 coaches, as far away as Michigan and California, registered for rally but sad to say a few members had to cancel at the last minute. Mother Nature was good to us with sunny days and cool nights. As Bob promised there was lobster on the menu every day. Saturday was our lobster bake, and it was so much fun to see everyone (especially first timers) attack the lobster!!
Boothbay is such a beautiful coastal area to visit in the northeast. Many members took advantage of the good weather to charter a sailboat to cruises around the harbor looking for lighthouses. The Botanical Gardens was visited by many as well as the Boothbay Railway Village. Thursday night we took great pleasure in recognizing Bob & Barb Engel, New York State Directors, for 10 years of service to the Klub and wish them well. An enameled US Flag was given to them as a thank you for all they have done to help our region grow into what it is today.
During the rally we were able to gather all our state directors and chapter officers together to discuss the future of our region and answer any questions that they had.
A great big thank you to RV ONE for all the help they have given our region rallies. Mark Strollo of RV One in Albany has been very generous over the years with support for our Klub. Stop by at RV One and thank the Strollo’s for their interest and generosity in our Klub.
Looking forward to rally season 2022. We will start the year off at the Tampa SuperShow Rally, January 19-24. We will be at the North Trail Venue Site promoting the Klub. We want to thank North Trail for their hospitality in letting us set up a booth to meet both current members and potential new Newmar owners.
Hope to see many of you at the International Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming July 16-23, 2022.
Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy 2022! Drive safe and as always, we can be reached by email firstname.lastname@example.org or Bob-401-808-9030 or Jane 401-808-9031.
