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

While we wait for the April or May newsletter to be posted, please be aware that on May 12th our President Larry Ryan has notified me that there will be a Diamond Tread Board meeting (everyone's invited) at San Martin Park (5231 Ocana Ave, Lakewood, CA 90713) at 3:00pm.  The purpose of this meeting is to discuss how the club should proceed with club meetings.

March brings us Spring, Daylight Savings Time, College Basketball (March Madness), OCMAFC Pancake Breakfast and sometimes rain… from a Model A perspective: in March 1930 the Model A sales hit three million and the Model A production ended in March 1932.  It was one year ago that Diamond Tread had their last Membership meeting.  By now many of us have had at least one Covid-19 vaccine, which is designed to make us less likely to catch the virus… however, it could still happen.  At this point, the club is still following the CDC protocol to mask up, socially distance, wash your hands and gather outside when possible.  I would also like to point out that the OCMAFC Board of Directors sadly voted that the 2021 breakfast be cancelled.

Let’s Spring right into the details of this month’s newsletter where you will find President Larry Ryan’s comments on club activities and his suggestion for our first (in the future) tour, member birthday/anniversary, new member summary, brief article on a personal visit to Nixon Library, automotive history and the technical Q&A section.

I would like to follow up this month (actually all months since April 2020) 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 COVID-19 is a real threat.  Walking the political tightrope, I hope that you all are wearing your masks (possibly double masks and 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!
