Diamond Tread Board and General Meetings

Will be held at Village Cafe

4148 1/2 N. Viking Way Long Beach

First Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm and 6:30pm

Since September of 2022, one of our own Diamond Tread Members             (J. C. Stephenson) has been fighting an illness that the doctors can not identify.  Since that time J.C. has lost over 85 pounds and is very weak. While visiting him last week at the La Habra Convalescent Hospital, he shared with me his concerns about making the co-pays for his medical needs. His daughter has initiated a              Go Fund Me account. Please take a minute an read J.C.'s story.

The April meeting spotlighted Luke Sayer with a very heartfelt presentation on vintage car and motorcycle racing circle. The meeting was well attended and once some of the bugs got ironed out with the visual equipment it was all good. Please visit us in May when Darwin Kirby will discuss his thoughts about the Model A Carburetor.

Diamond Tread had a good representation at the Orange County Model A Pancake Breakfast on 4/30. Louise Beckley and Chuck Mayhew were the Diamond Tread members that took home items from the raffle prizes. The day was a bit overcast and slightly chilly, but all in all a great day.

Charlie Sento and our Tour Director Larry Ryan arranged for the club to participate in a recent La Palma parade, in which there were six Model A’s representing Diamond Tread. For the month of May, Larry has lined us up to tour Egge Machine Company’s engine rebuild facility on Thursday May 11th. Hope that you will be able to join this educational tour.
