    Chapter 41 - Chapter 41 NYSKPS

    Updated by Eric LaJuene on February 25, 2015. Primary area of interest is The Great State of New York

    HISTORY OF CHAPTER 41 - NYSKP's
    After attending a Chapter 3 Rally and finding out there were 350 SKP members in NYS with no chapter, Esther Tallamy and her friends on Long Island decided to start one. And why not? She was qualified to do just that as she had been the first female Chapter president for SKP’s in the United States, presiding over Chapter 3. Chapter 3 consisted at that time of the New England States and Eastern NY. Fifty people were in attendance at the first meeting. Monthly luncheons continued until the first rally was held at Brook-N-Wood Campground, in Elizaville, NY, a small upstate town just east of the Hudson River in Dutchess County. That was May of 1996 and Esther became the new chapter’s first president. The Chapter continues to grow and holds two annual rallies, the first rally is typically held in early June and the second is on the weekend after Labor Day in September. Please come and join us as we explore the wonders of our region.”

    Our 2015 Spring Rally will be from Monday to Sunday, June 8 to 14, 2015 in BYRON, NY

    SPRING 2015 RALLY
    Southwoods RV Resort, Byron, NY
    June 8 - 14, 2015

    Our chapter will be hosting the Escapees Maple Leaf Chapter #18 at Southwoods RV Resort in Byron, NY http://www.southwoodsrvresort.com/ on June 8 - 14.
    Field trips to Letchworth State Park (the Grand Canyon of the East) and the Genessee Country Village Museum, as well as a cruise on the Erie Canal at Lockport and special meals are being planned for the week-long rally. If you have any free time during the week, there's plenty to do near and far, from the Jello Museum in Leroy (11 miles), Batavia Gaming and Harness track (12 miles), Camping World in Rochester (12 miles) to Niagara Falls (60 miles). The registration process will allow you to arrive at any time during the week. Our last international rally with Chapter 18 in Ontario was a great success and we're looking forward to a fun-filled one coming up in the spring as we host our Canadian neighbors.
    The registration form for this fun-filled rally is at the end of this newsletter and attached to the e-mail as a pdf file for your convenience.
