As we head into fall, MARCOM members enjoy some of our traditional and not so traditional events and tours. The Myricks annual fly-in was attended by MARCOM and what a beautiful day we had for the event. Thank you to Laurie O’Conner for highlighting this event and hosting the after party at her home. October also brings the Hershey antique auto show and flea market. This world renowned event has become a tradition for many MARCOM members and was well attended this year. Over 9000 vendors and 4 days of hunting for the tools, parts, toys, anything automotive that you may need. Also, in October, a number of MARCOM members will head to Martha’s Vineyard for the 10th annual Food & Wine festival. This is a 1st for MARCOM and we look forward to experiencing the island in our Model A Ford.

Thanks to Don Karp for running the monthly meeting as I was in Hershey, PA. The Ford/Benson video was entertainment for the evening and many important announcements were shared with members to outline the remainder of the year. In November we will have our annual auction so please begin to search for those items you can pass on for other members to enjoy. Remember all proceeds go to our treasury for future events. Also, our 1st annual pie extrav”A”ganza will be held during the auction. Over 10 different pies baked by members for all to enjoy. You won’t want to miss this meeting.

Lastly, our call to members to participate in the leadership of our club. Nominations will be sought for all positions as well look to encourage our membership to participate in this wonderful organization. Volunteers will receive much help and support throughout the year. Please don’t hesitate to offer your support. In an all-volunteer organization everyone’s participation is important to support the club we all enjoy. Please email or speak to myself or any one of our officers to show your interest in participating.

See you down the road,
