Iowa Model A Day Early Bird Welcome
For Model A enthusiasts arriving early on Friday, August 18, we will be having a presentation/tour starting at 2:30 PM at the Brau Haus* in Amana. The presentation will be about the history of the Amanas, Communal Living, the Religion, and the Amana Society Inc. Following that presentation, for those who wish, we'll drive a short distance to East Amana and visit an Amana cemetery. Next, we will visit the Amana Forestry Department to understand our Heritage wood concept. We will then follow the wood from this initial preparation to the Amana Furniture Manufacturing and understand the process into fine furniture.
We then return to the Brau Haus for refreshments and fellowship. (We anticipate this will be around 5:30-6:00 PM.)
If you arrive anytime after 2:30 PM there will be Club members at the Brau Haus to answer questions and assist with 'catching up' with the tour if you wish.
We so look forward to seeing you. For many of you our Model A Day has become kind of a reunion...so welcome back.

Hawk A Model A Ford Club Meetings are the 4th Tuesday of every month, except December
