Hello everyone,

It looks like Mother Nature has the final word as snow forced the cancellation of our February meeting. The snow however has not stopped all the work behind the scenes to prepare for a very busy year for MARCOM. On February 10th our club will host a tour committee meeting inviting all members to contribute their ideas and lead Model A tours which are fun for all who participate. Thank you to Lou & Rose Zadra for opening up their home to host this meeting. We are also preparing for our annual awards brunch on March 13th at the Fireside Grille in Middleboro, Mass. To enjoy a good meal and honor our fellow club members with the annual Morgan-Smith Award. The board has prepared guidance for the nomination process which can be found in this newsletter. I encourage you to take some time to nominate your fellow members for this prestigious award as the volunteer spirit is truly what makes our club work.

For all the treasure hunters out there, the MARCOM annual flea market is scheduled for March 6th at the Holmes Transportation Center in Norfolk, Mass. Yet another chance to find items you may need for your restoration or add to the collection of Model A parts and pieces you may need some day.  At our upcoming March meeting we will present a slide show of the largest antique auto flea market in the world, yes, Hershey. Please mark you calendars

Finally, the board has established June 11th for MARCOMs 60th anniversary celebration. The Holmes transportation center will be our venue. In addition to the potential of 60 model A’s on site, the Holmes family will open up their antique auto and memorabilia collection, provide miniature train rides for the kids and the open field for our drone photos. The board continues to investigate gift items for all who drive a Model A to the event. Remember our challenge is to get 60 Model A’s for our 60th Anniversary!

Enjoy the snow and I hope to see you at our next meeting,

Best Regards,

Bill Brum
Model A Restorers Club of Massachusetts
