Airstream camper owners attend rally in Kirksville

A caravan of Airstream campers are in the Kirksville area to attend an upcoming rally.

Members of the Region 8 Airstream Owners RV Association are not going to let chilly temperatures and rain ruin their fun. Region 8 is made up of Airstream owners from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. over 50 Airstream owners are in Kirksville for the extended weekend. During that time, they will be going on tours to see what Kirksville has to offer, such as the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine at ATSU. Games, entertainment, and dinners will also be held everyday during the rally, which is being held at the NEMO Fairgrounds.

"It's a club that if you get really involved, there is so much you can do with it and the only requirement is that you have to own an Airstream. That's the only requirement," said Glenn Waters, Airstream Region 8 President.

Members of the Airstream RV Association also help to give back. They do this by donating items to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
