The story goes a little something like this, “Fleetwood owners know best how to have fun!!” And because you know how to have fun, we want to celebrate with YOU!!!
2015 is a BIG year for us at Fleetwood RV. We are celebrating our 65th Anniversary!! That means, for 65 years, you have welcomed us into your homes and families to share in the joys of togetherness, travel, adventure, comradery, and just plain old fun! For that, we THANK YOU!
Now it’s our turn. We are inviting you into our town and our “home” [factory] to celebrate all that has made us a part of your family for years, together!
This year will be a little different than years past. We have some traditional activities and many new events planned. To make this event special, our National Rally will be held in the charming town of Decatur, Indiana, where all of our Fleetwood RVs are manufactured. During the rally, Fleetwood will host exclusive tours of our facility, provide a guided sculpture tour of masterpieces on display throughout downtown Decatur, invite guests to a wine tasting event and social “hour” with a local/national sculpture artist, sponsor an evening family-movie-in-the-park, and much more!! The rally will truly be a hit for kids, grandkids, spouses, loved ones, and others.
In honor of our 65th Anniversary, Fleetwood is offering a 4-night camping stay for $65.00. (FMA Members receive a $10 discount.) But better yet: all individuals who are registered by February 28, 2015 will win a chance to have lunch for four with the Mayor of Decatur and COO of Fleetwood. What sounds better than a free lunch at the historic Back 40 Junction?
Excitement is already abuzz in Decatur! Businesses have jumped on board to sponsor activities and events, the Chamber of Commerce is “hands on deck” ready for fun, the local Adams County Community Foundation has embraced the excitement and is stirring up all kinds of activity – just take a look, the local newspaper is sharing the message and bringing awareness. All this excitement just cannot be contained!... Come join us and see!! It’s fun you don’t want to miss.
