To say “thanks,” we are inviting you back to Decatur, Indiana for a memorable Homecoming event. We had so much fun together last year that the demand merited a return gathering in our hometown again in 2016.
Many of the popular events held last year are already being planned… But you haven’t seen all of what Decatur and our surrounding communities have to offer. New events are being planned, too. More to see. More to do. More to enjoy.
During the rally, Fleetwood will host exclusive tours of our facility, informative seminars from exhibitors and technical staff, meals, movie night and entertainment. Fleetwood will also be a leading sponsor for the guided Decatur Sculpture Tour, hosted by the North Adams Arts Council, of masterpieces on display throughout downtown Decatur, guests are invited to a wine tasting event and social “hour” with local & national sculpture artists. The rally will truly be a hit for everyone.
And due to the overwhelming interest expressed for factory tour participation, all rally attendees will be assigned to a factory tour date [by your registration number], for those that wish to participate in a guided tour. More information will be announced as the rally draws closer and further plans are completed.
All this excitement just cannot be contained! ... Come join us and see!! It’s fun you don’t want to miss.
