Highlights from Williamsburg Rally

27 coaches gathered at the KOA Campground in Williamsburg the weekend of November 30 - December 2 for the Christmas rally.  Special thanks to the hosts:  Cil & Fairleigh Schoolar, Barbara & Bobby Dyke and Susan & Jim Buelow. Click here to view photos from the weekend.

A special welcome to new members Glenn & Tamie Zobel and Jim & Ann Dibble who attended the rally and Sam & Holly Mangano who were staying at the campground and decided to join Dogwood.

It was the perfect weekend - great weather, food and camaraderie.  The rally officially kicked off Friday with a fried chicken dinner.  Saturday the group was treated to an eggs benedict breakfast followed by a business meeting.  Saturday evening we enjoyed a beef tenderloin dinner followed by our traditional Yankee gift swap.  Thanks to Donna Gruel, our entertaining emcee, the woman of many interesting sunglasses!  After breakfast together Sunday morning, we packed up and headed home.  

Throughout the weekend, attendees enjoyed shopping, visiting historic sites, spa treatments, and meals out including lunch at Pierce's bbq sitting outside on picnic tables.

A special thanks to the following who donated items for the goodie bags:  Becky’s Hallmark, Dixie RV, Sun Trust, Virginia Lottery, US Air Force, and Harris Truck and Repair.
