Message from the president: April 2020

We hope everyone is safe and well during the worldwide corona virus pandemic. Are you staying home and out of germs way? We are doing our best. We’re fortunate we have a lot of hobbies to keep us busy and Steve has suddenly become very busy in the kitchen. I hate to cook so that’s a good thing, I think. I’ll have to ask the scales.

Unfortunately the fundraiser at Greene Turtle for the Miracle League of Harford County was canceled on March 19 and our rescheduled breakfast was also. Hopefully we can get back on track in a month or two. We just heard that MD schools have been delayed opening again until April 24 (and I suspect until the end of the semester will come next) so we don’t expect things to be back to normal soon. With that in mind, we can’t be to0 sure about events on our calendar, so we’ll try to keep you updated in a timely manner via email if things change.

We did get to visit the America on Wheels Museum in Allentown, PA on Feb. 29, 2020 before the curtain came down on America. Two of our members, John and Tom Young have their Thunderbirds on loan to the museum. It was a great visit and we had a wonderful time at the Starlite Diner afterwards. Thanks to Tom Young for setting up a wonderful outing. Also this year on Thunderbird Appreciation Day, May 17th, we hope to go to Wright’s Restaurant in Wrightsville PA again for their outstanding Breakfast Buffet. We’ll reserve tables overlooking the Susquehanna River. Let Lynn Horn know if you will attend (unless still quarantined). Lynn is at

We have sent you all an email telling you of an outing that New Jersey Thunderbird Association has invited us to join. It will be October 23-25 at the Carriage House B&B in Ocean Grove NJ. Lots to do nearby and it sounds like a fun time. Several couples have already expressed interest so please let us know if you want to join us. Also remember, even though we have to stay ‘socially distant’ you can always get in your T-bird and RIDE! Hardly anybody on the roads and gas prices are down. As always, please continue to visit, use and contribute to the MATC website and Facebook pages.
