Our organization name is Diamond Tread Chapter, Model A Ford Club of America.
Thank you for visiting our Internet site.
Greetings and welcome to our site,
as Diamond Tread's 50th year comes to a close (officially on March 14th
Happy February and the new Board of Directors is hoping for another great year! As I am sure you are aware of, the effort
your Board Of Directors put into the planning of events is what makes this
chapter run so smooth. Hats off to each of
the Board Members for their great work... be it the copious notes of the
Secretary, penny pinching of the Treasure, strict timelines mandated by
Membership, request for meeting snack contributors from Hospitality, gathering
of pictures and chapter updates to MAFCA by Historian/Publicity, thoughtful
planning of tours by the Tour Director, organization efforts by Fund/Picnic
Coordinator, globally visible efforts of Webmaster, relating
of anecdotes and facts by the Editor and personal assistance/guidance provided
by the new Director of Henry's Helpers.
These individuals help make our club run efficiently - Thank you and now
my hat goes back on.

John Bosco's High School Parade and work done by Barry Beckley and Mark
