Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

MARCOMs annual Christmas Party did not disappoint. An extraordinary amount of good food, gifts, and conversation including some Model A talk. Special thanks to Rick & Jerri Coffey for the beautiful raffle gifts and Dolores Marchewka for all the effort to provide the centerpieces and decorative table cloths. What a great way to end the year.

From a personal perspective, I would like to thank all who contributed their time and energy to make 2016 a year to remember. Our annual events such as the flea market and auction were record setting. Also, we had a few 1st time events like our Martha’s Vineyard tour and a Pie Extrav”A”ganza. Not to forget the 60th New England Meet and our own 60th Anniversary Celebration. It’s a good thing when there are just too many events to list.

As your outgoing president I leave you in the trusted hands of Chuck Marchewka as your new president for 2017. Members also elected Don Karp (VP), Sue Maynard (Secretary), Steve Pyne (Treasurer), and Rick Coffey as membership chairman. The Board of Directors includes yours truly, Dean Zwicker, Lou Zadra, Chuck Marchewka and Bruce Ketchen. We appreciate and thank these volunteers and wish for another wonderful year.

I could not possibly in this message thank everyone who contributed towards the success of our club this year. Please know that it is your efforts that make MARCOM an enjoyable club for all who choose to participate. Thanks again, and I will see you down the road,

Bill Brum

2016 President
