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. **** Please review the Calendar entries, as some events have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 Virus ****
We hope that you and yours are staying safe
It is great to hear that a majority of us in the United States and the world are
heeding the advice to "Shelter-in-place" and practice "Personal/Social
Distancing". From what I
understand, following these two recommendations greatly reduces our chances
of contracting the COVID-19 virus. The
World Health Organization (WHO) says "it's a matter of how we use our best
efforts to drive this virus down. There's no excuse to show that we are able to
do this - do everything that you can to be as aggressive as you can against the virus".
There are many that feel that
following the recommendations to "Shelter-in-place" and practice "Personal/Social
Distance" is against their personal rights. The fact that this is a Pandemic (worldwide
spread of a new disease), should be an indication that it is nothing
personal. Some of those that have chosen to
disregard these recommendations have proven that not "playing along" increases our chances of contracting the COVID-19 virus.
I hope that you are all
"playing along" and staying safe, so I will be able to see you out on
the road with your Model A.
