Greetings and welcome to our site.  We hope that you and yours are staying safe and healthy!

As we leave Daylight Savings Time and get back into Pacific Standard Time, we have the opportunity for some much-needed rain here in Southern California.  With the wildfires that have cursed our state, locally we are also experiencing unhealthy air quality.  Those wildfires will mean taking the California Car Duster out more frequently to keep our cars looking good.  As mentioned last month “Drive By” celebrations are becoming quite common.  Several Diamond Tread members joined the “Thank you for Your Service Tour with the Early Ford V-8 Club of Southern California”, which was very popular.

In October the Board met to discuss club activity and the open 2021 Diamond Tread Board Of Director (BOD) positions.  While there are several Board members seeking replacements, there were a few that noted with reduced club activities, they would stay on another year.  I hope that if you get a recruitment call, that you will consider offering your time as a Diamond Tread BOD member!

I would like to follow up this month (actually all months since April) hoping that you and yours are healthy and doing well during this world wide pandemic.  This virus seems to have it’s restrictive grip tightly around the individuals that believe that COVID-19 is a real threat.  Walking the political tightrope, I hope that you all are wearing your masks (possibly even face shields now), keeping your social distance and washing/sanitizing your hands frequently.  

Everyone has a role to play.   So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense:
·        Stay home except for essential needs/activities. 
·        Wear a cloth face mask and face-shield if you leave home.
·        Practice physical distancing – stay 6 feet away from people.
·        Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
·        Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
·        Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.
·        Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow -  Wash hands afterwards. 
We care about you and want to see you on the road again soon!  Stay Safe!
