Why should you belong to a local Chapter?
The Good Sam RV club got its start 40 years ago when a handful of RVers put Good Samaritan bumper stickers on the road and in campgrounds on their rigs so fellow members would know they could get help on the road. From this small Club we grew. In the early days, Good Sam Members spread the word at RV parks and other Club events. Soon everyone wanted to know how to get a Good Sam “smiling face” decal.
You should belong to a local chapter for the fun, fellowship, games, travel, eating, craft, love of the outdoors, camping, etc. A chapter is made up of a varying number of rigs. The individual chapter decides on the number. Chapters support each other by having monthly campouts, or during winter months, having dinner meetings. They camp together and support each other when there are problems. Local chapters have vests in their chapter colors, patches, etc. The more who are involved, the more things you can do. Many chapters support local charities; most all the chapters support Special Olympics and/or Dogs for the Deaf.
