As we head into the fall season MARCOM members are preparing for several signature events. September will bring the New England Meet with close to 200 Model A’s registered to attend this year’s event. The New England meet will be hosted by the Minutemen in beautiful Westwood, Massachusetts. We hope to see many of you there. In October we will head to Martha’s Vineyard for the 10th annual Wine & Food festival which is the 1st visit to the island for our club. Please keep an eye on the newsletter for event details going forward.

The September meeting program was a “Show & Tell” format prepared by Bruce Ketchen. A number of MARCOM members shared their technical and non-technical experiences with the Model A Ford. It was fun to hear how many of our members and friends are engaged in the hobby. We also discussed our upcoming annual auction which will occur at the November meeting. So please begin to rummage around your home for items you want to pass on for others to enjoy. Remember all proceeds go to the club treasury and help support future events that we all enjoy. The November meeting will also bring our 1st Annual Pie Extrav”A”ganza! Club members will bring their favorite pie to share with others. So far we have 11 distinct pies to sample, don’t miss it!

Our 1st call for club officers & board members will occur in the month of September. All positions are open as we look to encourage member participation. A nominating committee will be formed to guide the process and the board will solicit members to participate. Our club has many capable members so please consider helping to sustain this vibrant club by offering your time and energy. Please reach out myself or any board member to offer your support.

Our website committee has met to outline a plan to maintain the site content going forward. Thank you to Bruce Madio and Bruce Ketchen for volunteering their time to support this effort. Our goal will be to insure all newsletters are posted in the member’s only section and maintain a fully populated events calendar. I have noticed many new inquiries of our club come via the website. Please take some time to visit the site and become familiar with the content and how to navigate. It will be a great source of information going forward.

See you down the road,
Bill Brum
