Fire Apparatus Association
Over this past weekend the CAFAA Board (President Frank Tremel, Vice President Tim Jones, Secretary Bernie Punte, Treasurer Maureen Higgins, and Directors Jesse Walter and Sean Spacek) met via email to review the responses received to the email distributed to the membership on August 1st soliciting comments on the upcoming muster. The comments received from various members were extremely thoughtful and in support of the idea to cancel the muster. While some may feel that we still have 6 weeks before the muster date and it is ‘too early’ to make a decision, in good conscience the Board feels that the most responsible choice is to cancel the event scheduled for October 4, 2020. We look forward to the first Saturday in June 2021 (June 5) to hold the 51st CAFAA Spring Muster.
At this time, the Fire Museum of Maryland (FMM) is still planning their Motor Muster on September 12, 2020 and The White Rose Chapter of SPAAMFAA (Old Farts) has relocated their event scheduled for Sunday, September 27, 2020. I have included flyers for both events with this email.
We appreciate the input from the membership and please know this was not a decision we wanted to make but for the health and safety of us it is the best decision.
