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
Welcome to September, which is from the old Roman work "septem",
meaning SEVEN, because the Roman calendar it was the seventh month. In many parts of the world September is also
the first month of Autumn and is associated with the beginning of school. There are three traditional flowers of the
month of September: the Aster, symbolizing love; the Forget-me-not, representing
memories and love; and the Morning glory, symbolizing unrequited love. Here in California September continues to
bring us warm weather in which we can get our cars out on the road.
Please take a look at the September newsletter for details on: The good time
had by all at the Picnic In The Park, the joint tour with San Gabriel Valley
MARC/MAFCA to the Rubel Castle in Glendora, the good times had on the Carlsbad
tour and the fact that the monthly Diamond Tread meetings will once again be
held at Gallatin Elementary School in Downey.
