MAMA also expresses gratitude for all those who supported our show!

A great big thank you to all our trophy sponsors! They made it possible for us to bestow upon our class winners what we happen to think are among the nicest-looking trophies in the hobby.

Another great big thank you to all of the 24 vendors who came out to the show and provided participants with plenty of items with which to grow their collections.

We also want to acknowlege the terrific support of the Level Volunteer Fire Hall in providing us an affordable venue and accomodating our schedule. We are particularly thankful for Ms. Karen Lopes and the Ladie's Auxilliary who were key to making the show arrangements by interacting with the hall's Operational and Administrative officers on our behalf, helped set up the tables, and staffed the kitchen to make sure there was a good selection of tasty menu items available for us and our show participants to nosh on for breakfast and lunch!

Last, but not least, we want to thank all those club members who worked so hard behind the scenes to make the show happen.

MAMA especially thanks each and every particiant and visitor who attended our show. You made the show the success that it was.


Congratulations to all of our 2023 winners!
