FMCA Convention to Begin Wednesday in Massachusetts

Tue Aug 2, 2016

West Springfield, Massachusetts - When the homes away from home begin rolling onto the grounds of the Eastern States Exposition this week, they'll bring with them more than just a new group of visitors to Western Massachusetts.

The first convention the Cincinnati-based international Family Motor Coach Association has hosted in Massachusetts will bring members who will continue their tradition of giving back to the communities they visit.

Members of the motorhome owners group will make contributions in a variety of ways including donating quilts, eyeglasses and non-perishable food to local organizations as the association hosts its 94th international convention at the exposition grounds beginning Wednesday.
