Golden Empire Sams RV Club
Our most recent outing was April 7 through 11 at the Heritage RV Park in Corning. On this outing we toured the Abby of New Clairvaux in Vina.
We also enjoyed beautiful weather March 10 through 14 at the Gridley RV Park with 12 rigs in attendance. Our group enjoys Bingo, Dominoes, board games, puzzles, outdoor activities and tours of local attractions. On Tuesday we had the opportunity to visit the Stained Glass Junction in Gridley where we viewed beautiful custom works of stained glass art.
