The summer is proving to be a memorable one for MARCOM members as beautiful weather continues to entice members to drive their Model A’s and enjoy the many events planned for 2016. Our tour to Blithewold in Bristol, RI was an enjoyable outing as members experienced the luxury of a time gone by at this well preserved mansion and grounds. We also enjoyed the comradery of our friends from the Cape Cod Model A club and look forward to future outings with our fellow Model A’ers from the region. Our tour was followed by lunch at Blount seafood’s clam shack where we all indulged in the best summer has to offer. Once again we want to thank Charles & Gloria for their effort to plan this tour.

Despite the threat of passing storms MARCOM members showed up in force at our summer ice cream tour on July 1st at Crescent Ridge in Sharon, Mass. This family farm has been in existence since 1932 and continues to be one of the premier dairy farms in our region. Who doesn’t like ice cream? Just another reason to get out and enjoy the ride and a bit of tire kicking. Members also discussed upcoming parades in both Squantum and Duxbury as we look forward to celebrating the 4th of July.

This month MARCOM plans to celebrate its 60th anniversary on July 30th at the Holmes Transportation Center in Norfolk, Mass. We are all ready to go! Commemorative gifts have been purchased for all who bring a Model A. Please encourage all our Model A friends to attend as our goal is to bring out 60 Model A’s for the event. We are also planning to photograph the event for an article in the national magazines. We hope to see you all there. Don’t forget July is our blueberry picking month and that tour has always been a popular outing. Please look for further details in the newsletter.

Do you have an idea for a tour or monthly meeting program? We are always looking for members to share their knowledge and experience and welcome any thoughts or ideas. If you would like to share or suggest any ideas please let me know. We rely on our members to participate to make our events enjoyable for all.

Enjoy your summer,
