PIEDMONT AIRSTREAM CLUB VETERANS DAY AND INSTALLATION RALLY November 5-8, 2020
Fayetteville RV Resort & Cottages
6250 Wade-Stedman Road, Wade, NC 910-484-5500
HOSTS: Bogdan & Robin Gieniewski and Andy & Karen Karakos .
Come join the Piedmont Airstream Club to salute our Veterans in the most patriotic town in North Carolina! In Fayetteville, Veterans Day is every Day and every Veteran honored for their service and sacrifice to keep our Freedom Free. This will also be our Installation Rally to gather and celebrate.
The centerpiece of this event was to be the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Fayetteville—which has been cancelled. But we can certainly make our own celebration in a ‘just camping’ event with some optional outings.
Since this will be a weekend to celebrate our Veterans, we encourage participants to decorate accordingly. There will be a small prize for the best decorations.
When making reservations, please specify that you are with the Piedmont Airstream Club for our discounted rally rate and to camp with the group. The Rally Coordinator is Wanda. The campground will not hold our sites after October 5th.
Please RSVP to Robin Gieniewski not later than October 5 to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need final counts for the museum tour, restaurant, golfing and our catered dinner.
PS – We appreciate your flexibility in these challenging times. There will most likely still be the need for masks and social distancing in November and we will follow NC guidelines and respect the comfort levels of attendees.
