        Our Charter members belonged to a local Chapter but realized that we had several members from the Tomah Area so we started a new Chapter.  We had a meeting September 2005 to form our Chapter, organized our officers and sent in our request to become a Chapter of the Good Sam Club.  We heard back quickly from the International Good Sam Club and was informed we were accepted as a new Chapter in Wisconsin on September 26, 2005.  We received our Charter at the Spring State meeting April 2006. 
         Our first officers and Charter members were:  President - Randi (Bonnie) Owen, Tomah; Vice-President - Cheryl (Keith) Keene, Tomah; Secretary/Treasurer - Marshall (Ann) Kiel, Tomah; John & Jenny Johnson, Warrens and Patsy & Crystal Wagner and Darrell Ball, Elroy (5 rigs and 11 members).  

         Our current officers and members are:  President - Bonnie (Randi) Owen, Tomah;  Vice-President - Jim (Lu) DeVoe, Tomah; Treasurer - Harold & Secretary - Diane Janechek, Reedsburg;  Cheryl (Keith) Keene, Tomah (also WI State West Assistant Directors); Marshall (Ann)  Kiel, Tomah; Esther Bohnert, Sparta, Robert Crook, Tomah and Associate Member June Root, Tomah  (8 families and 13 members).

         We informed the State Director in September 2005 at the Fall State Meeting that we were going to apply for a new Charter and we had our proposed patch and flag approved at that time.  We also decided to have sashes instead of the traditional vests to put our patches and pins on, but recently changed back to the vest because of room to display our patches. We are currently 11 years old as of September 2016.

         We believe as members of the WI State Organization, that we should promote any State events and participate in their success, so our June campout is held at the WI State Samboree and our July campout is held at the N/W District Jumbo.  We were voted the Wisconsin Chapter of the Year in 2006/2009/2010/2011/2012/2014/2015 and 2016, we were named the 2015 Northern Plains Region Chapter of the Year, we received the 2006 & 2008 Dogs for the Deaf Top Dog Flag for the Chapter who donated the most from our State and we were awarded the Dogs for the Deaf 2013 "Miracle Maker Award" Flag and we hosted the SW District Jumbo from 2006-2013. 

We currently have 8 families totaling 13 members.
