Hello from the South Central Chapter. The Holidays are behind us and we are now in the 20’s ….year that is, I still can’t believe we made it to 2020. I hope everyone is not freezing or digging out from the snow. Down here in Texas we’ve had a pretty uneventful winter and I can’t wait for Spring. Our Chapter has been busy planning our Spring and upcoming Fall Rallies and if we can sneak one in this summer I’ll be all for it. Our Spring Rally will be in beautiful Kerrville TX. at Buckhorn Lake RV Park. The RV Park is located just off I-10 right outside of town. The dates are May 4th thru 8th. I think many ACA members traveling thru Texas have stayed here and will admit, it doesn’t get much better than this RV Park. Jack & Sylvia Jones along with Doug & Barbara Wellhausen will be our Rally Hosts and have been doing a great job organizing the event. We will be presenting the VA Dogs of Texas a check for $10,000 dollars to sponsor our 3rd Veterans Assist Dog. You don’t want to miss this. They will be bringing some of the dogs out for us to see, first hand, the amazing work they are doing for our Veterans. So if you haven’t already signed up, please call Buckhorn Lake and make your reservation ASAP, see ya in May !!
Jack Jones and myself took on a Survey project to find out why members are not continuing their ACA or SCC membership status, and I/we have received some important feedback that I hope will help stabilize the membership in the future. Reaching out and just making contact with members is important, Jack Jones our VP and the SCC Board will be working in the future to try and address some of these issues. Trust me, it is a work in progress that has to be done in order to keep our Chapter thriving.
Onto the Fall Rally, which will be held the week before the National Rally on Toledo Bend Reservoir at the Cypress Bend RV Park & Resort. The dates are from Oct 27th-30th and our host’s will be Benny & Sandy Hobson with an assist from Arlion & Susan Gesford. Cypress Bend Resort has an 18 hole championship golf course and of course a Spa for the ladies. The host’s will be planning some fun outings for all, I’m sure. Following the Rally we will caravan over to Marksville for the National Rally. Look for info. on our website which Barbara Wellhausen has just finished revamping, thank you Barbara !! Feel free to contact me or any of our board members with your questions or concerns or just to say “What’s Up” !!! and as always stay safe out there and God Bless ….
President, South Central Chapter
