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. This is Diamond Tread's 50th year as a club (officially on March
July is upon us and I always look forward to celebrating July 4th! The Pomp and Circumstances that goes along
with the celebration of American's Independence Day. I think of July 4th, 1776 as a day that
represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States
of America as an independent nation. I also reflect on the fact that independence
and freedom do not come free. I
appreciate the dedication and commitment that so many have put forth for all of
us to have the freedom that we have today... Thank You.
