Golden Empire Sams RV Club

The Golden Empire Sam’s group had a fun time at the 49er Village RV Resort May 5 through 9 in Plymouth. Our members toured the 14-acre Amador Flower Farm in Plymouth. The farm is alive with color as more than a million day lilies and hundreds of varieties of other unique perennials and grasses are in beautiful splendor. We also enjoy pot luck meals and playing Bingo on Monday nights. If interested in joining our group, call our membership chairman, Roger Lilly, at 530-477-1799 or president Ron Brown at 530-432-6678.
