NOT September 18-22, 2019

 Region 5 Rally will be held at the Lee County Fairgrounds, near Amboy, Illinois
Lee County 4-H Center, 1196 Franklin Rd, Amboy, IL 61310

The 2019 Region 5 Rally will start on Wednesday September 4th and complete on Sunday the 8th. The Rally will be held at the Lee County Fairgrounds located near Amboy Illinois. The facility will suit our needs nicely with ample rig parking with electric and water available. There is also a pump out at the fairgrounds. We will have exclusive use of a large building with a meeting / dining room and a commercial kitchen. There is also an outside deck for our use and a location to have a camp fire.
There are many attractions in the area and I am working on an agenda. Some of the things to see in the area include: the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan, historic John Deere sites in Grand Detour and Moline, an awesome Railroad museum in Amboy and another in Union, a very nice historic museum in Dixon and many other local attractions.
I am also looking into taking a day trip to Chicago and do the architectural boat tour and lunch. So please mark your calendar, I promise we will have a great time.

Region 5 President
