Rolling Wheels Sams #7

Joel Long - President

Rolling Wheels Good Sams is VT Good Sam Chapter #7. It was formed in Chester, VT, on October 27, 1980, by Lee and Simone Murray, Phil and Elinor Marshall, Stan and Judy Hodgeman, Art and Judy Bryant, and George and Cheryl Cook. Members come from several towns in the Chester area, as well as other parts of VT and even other states.

We are a fun loving group of around 30 Good Sammers who meet monthly. We camp together in the summer, and have indoor get togethers in the colder months on the second Saturday of months November through April. We have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast in November and a Christmas party complete with our very own Santa who distributes gifts to young and old. Campouts are usually to campgrounds in the VT/ NH area and sometimes extending into MA. We also do many activities at the VT Samboree including serving a spaghetti dinner and fried bread dough. Our chapter uses our resources to support many local charities to include several local food shelves, and others deemed worthy by the membership. The teamwork is lots of fun!

Some of our camping activities include pot lucks, campfires, various games, ice cream socials, soup suppers and more. We do love to eat! This year several people plan to attend the big Syracuse Rally. We will also have a mystery ride. We haven’t had one in several years, and it is such fun to travel in a caravan following the leader while trying to guess where we will end up!

We welcome new members! Our chapter dues are $15.00 per year. Visitors are welcome at indoor meetings as well as campouts so you can check us out and see if you want to join us. We are a friendly group, kind of like a big extended family and always enjoy getting together! We would love to have YOU and your family join us for the fun!!
