"I'm amazed that we are in our sixth year of this wonderful event," David Revere of Mike Thompson RV says. "We start planning months in advance and the entire staff looks forward to helping out. Each year, more of our vendors, manufacturers, customers and friends open their hearts and wallets to support our community.
