National Awards Banquet cancelled

May 14 - In a special meeting of the MAFCA Board of Directors this morning it was decided to cancel this year’s National Awards Banquet. Installation of officers will be held in MAFCA’s La Habra office instead.

The reasons for this action include the unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, risks of air travel, and health of our members. Cowtown A’s in Fort Worth have agreed to host the event in 2021. By then we all hope this world-wide medical tragedy will be in our rear-view mirror.

ERA HATS - Impact of COVID-19


April 12 - As you know, we are all social distancing and staying home etc. Pretty well every business around our towns is closed, including hair salons and barbers. You may have noticed that a lot of people need haircuts about now.

I’ve been fretting about my hair for weeks and I’ve come up with a solution. I’m going to start a new fashion trend – wearing of hats on all occasions. I had thought of calling this trend the ‘Covid Cloche’, but not all hats will be cloches.

I'll start this off with a photo of me and my husband Brian wearing our era hats. Why don't you send in your photo of your era hat to the MAFCA website? Men or women or children.

Take care and stay well. Mary Carlson, North Vancouver, BC
