April Swap Meet Canceled

Be safe, be healthy.

The COARA spring swap meet has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. Due to the statewide lock down that extends till May 1 we will not be able to have this meet. Additionally, we want all of our members to be safe, healthy and ready to join us in the fall when we will try again with our fall tailgate swapmeet.

Due to the virus apocalypse, we are cancelling our March meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday March 18th. This is out of an abundance of caution and the fact many of our members are of a certain demographic that should remain away from folks for awhile.

Stay tuned for the make up date.

Stay Well.

Update from the President

I am feeling much better after my recent illness prevented me from attending the most recent meeting. I wish to thank club members Carlie and Brad for running the meeting.

I just updated the calendar, we have an Estes auction on March 16th, a meet in Pittsburgh on April 28th and a club meeting on April 17th. Also remember the fabulous Kutztown show is in May.

A venue and an agenda for the April meeting will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.
