Members of the Happy (OK) Wanderers chapter have been happily wandering for 25 years. It has been a memorable journey. An anniversary rally was held April 21-24, 2016, at Durant/Choctaw Casino KOA in Durant, Oklahoma. Members arrived in 42 motorhomes, and a few couples stayed in motels.
Saturday’s anniversary party was attended by 117 chapter members and guests. It was quite a sight to see all the members dressed in their blue chapter vests with white shirts or blouses. Following a delicious catered lunch, Rod Sartwell, FMCA national vice president, South Central Area, presented a chapter certificate of recognition to Dwayne Davis and Manuel Jackson. Dwayne is the current chapter president and Manuel was the chapter’s first president, along with his wife, Ramona. Charter members were recognized. Creekhouse Crew provided musical entertainment, and cake and ice cream were served. Door prizes were awarded courtesy of Durant/Choctaw Casino KOA and Camping World.
