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 14th 2019)!
November is here... you can tell because the Retailers already have Christmas
decorations up. On the original Roman
calendar, November was the ninth month of the year. It got its name from the
Latin word "novem" which means nine. However, it became the eleventh
month when the Romans added in January and February to the start of the year. November has often been thought of as a somber
month because it signaled the start of winter. People would spend the month
storing up their harvest and preparing their food and homes in order to survive
the winter. In addition to Thanksgiving
and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, November brings us: Daylight Savings Time
ends, is one of the four months with 30 days, special events the day after
Thanksgiving: National Day of Listening, National Native American Heritage Day,
Flossing Day, Maize Day and the ever famous Black Friday. While the days are getting shorter, the
weather is still pleasant enough to get our Model A's out on the road.
Please take a look at the November newsletter for details on: the addition of a
new Board Of Director member, 2020 Membership Dues are now due, Ticket To The
Twenties review, Installation Luncheon held 12/7 and request for donation items
for said luncheon.
