Editor’s Note: The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA)
this week issued the following memo to its members regarding the
celebration in June of the RV Centennial.
In celebration of our industry’s 100th anniversary, RVIA will host
the RV Centennial Celebration, a very special event taking place
Monday, June 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the RV/MH Hall of Fame
and Museum in Elkhart, Indiana. This is going to be an energetic
extravaganza with a fun-filled festival, reception and barbecue; a
special one-hour program featuring entertaining videos and presentations
saluting the industry’s history; and, a cake-cutting ceremony and
rousing fireworks display to cap the evening.
Tickets are now available for the RV Centennial Celebration. The
deadline to purchase tickets is May 21, 2010. However, tickets purchased
on or before May 14 can be obtained at the discount rate of $25 per
ticket. On May 15, the regular ticket cost will be $35 per ticket. I
strongly urge you to purchase your tickets now as we expect the event to
reach capacity and sell out early. Walk-ups cannot be accommodated at
the event. Tickets must be purchased in advance. You can buy tickets for
anyone, including spouses, colleagues and co-workers, over the age of
A very important theme of the RV Centennial Celebration will be a
“Salute to RV Workers” to honor the industry’s hard-working men and
women who build the product and who are the heart and soul of our
industry. This will include special recognition of those workers
attending the event, a video salute from industry leaders, and the
presentation of a commemorative plaque honoring the industry’s workers
to the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum.
Considering the “Salute to RV Workers” theme of the event, I
encourage you to use the party as an incentive to recognize your
company’s best and most valued hourly line workers. By providing tickets
to those you would like to single out for acknowledgment, they can be
part of the special salute we have planned, which will include those
workers in attendance standing for recognition.
The RV Centennial Celebration will be one of the signature events
of our industry’s 100th year. It really will be a can’t-miss event, and I
hope to see you there.
