The Redboine Sams are an active chapter with members located in and around Winnipeg. Beginning the 2020 year, we have 19 rigs and 9 associate members. Four of our couples hold offices on the Manitoba/Northwest Ontario provincial executive. We normally have a good attendance at the Provincial RV Rally which enables our remaining members to assume the duties that are allotted to our chapter. We camp together once a month, May through September, at campgrounds within a couple hours drive of Winnipeg. Most members arrive Thursday and leave on Sunday. During the weekend we enjoy each other's company through Happy Hours, chapter meetings, dinner in the campground or at restaurants. We also enjoy lawn and table games and Sunday morning breakfasts as well as town outings to golf, shop or garage sale. At one of our campouts next year, we will organize a Silent Auction and Book Sale. The proceeds of this event plus a Silent Auction at the annual RV Rally are donated to our chosen charity. Between 2011 and 2018, we have sponsored The Dream Factory, a Manitoba based non-profit organization that supports children with life-threatening diseases. During that time, we were proud to have contributed well over $13,000. to this deserving organization. Our charity of choice for 2019 was the Wounded Warriors Service Dog Program and we were able to donate $3,000. In 2020 our Charity of Choice will again be the Wounded Warriors Service Dog Program. In the off-season, we get together for our AGM, Christmas dinner, games night as well as once a month breakfasts at Winnipeg restaurants. Our Executive for the 2018-2019 year is: President: Ed Lewis (Diane Johnson); Vice President: John Ferreira (Cheryl Rentz); Treasurer: Cheryl Rentz (John Ferreira); Secretary: Barb Bell (Ralph); Wagon Master: George Wiebe (Donna) We always welcome new Good Sam Club members to our Chapter. There is no restriction on age, size or type of RV. For more information, please contact our President, Ed Lewis. You can also find us on Facebook as "Camping with the Redboine Sams".
