The year 2020 is behind us, finally, and we can look forward to a much better year now that several vaccines for COVID-19 virus are being disseminated, albeit a little slow. Iowa Model A Day committee is meeting monthly again and planning to hold the club's annual August event this year.
The club will start holding in-person monthly meetings again starting May 25th at the Hiawatha Community Center.
The May Swap Meet has been cancelled due to concerns about the pandemic and the status of vaccinations in Iowa, but the AACA is going to hold its swap meet on October 2, this fall, at the Linn County Fair Grounds in Central City. The Hawk A Model A Swap Meet will return next spring.
