Motor homes to fill county fairgrounds
That is when the Wisconsin State Rally of the Winnebago Itasco Travelers will be held there.
Mayor Don Morgan and his wife Bev will be among those staying on the grounds.
He said those who own Winnebago or Itasca motor homes or campers may become members of the Winnebago Itasca Travelers.
It is an international club, with most members from the United States and Canada.
Morgan said each state has a state club which then has an annual state rally.
WIT chapters from across the country and Canada have been invited to the Wisconsin State Rally.
It will follow the Grand National Rally, which is being held July 15 to 20 by Winnebago on its company-owned campgrounds across from its plant in Forest City, Iowa.
"We are inviting members leaving Forest City and looking for their next destination to stop in Weyauwega and spend a few days with us.
"Some of these folks are full timers. They live in their motor homes or campers full time and travel from place to place as they have the urge to do so," Morgan said.
He said the Wisconsin State Rally will include Camping World sending three new Winnebago Motor Homes to Weyauwega for display and viewing.
This will be the first time something like that is available at the fairgrounds, Morgan said.
As a result, he has been working with the Waupaca County Parks Department to hold a joint public house.
It will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 22.
The three motor homes will be open for viewing, and the parks department will have its buildings open for viewing.
The Weyauwega Fire Department will also have its new fire truck on display, Morgan said.
At 4:30 p.m., the fire department will present an approximately 15-minute fire safety seminar to the motor home owners.
The mayor said about 25 people are expected to travel to Green Bay on Monday, July 23 to tour Lambeau Field and visit the National Railroad Museum.
Plans also call to take a group to Oshkosh on Tuesday, July 24 for the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture and for Morgan to lead a farm tour at Quantum Dairy.
