Our meeting and holiday celebration at Harvey and Mary Waller’s party barn was a night to remember. The atmosphere was festive, and the food was nothing short of incredible. We would like to thank everyone for bringing their best potluck dishes, which made the evening even more delightful. We enjoyed spending time with old friends and making new ones. It was truly a night of great food and great company. All while being entertained by Jack Waldheim’s beautiful singing and guitar playing from Christmas songs to his own music from the balcony in the party barn.
The fireplaces were roaring and added that touch of ambiance while we all settled into a delightful evening of catching up and celebrating the last gathering before Harvey and Mary head to sunny Florida for their winter retreat.
Please check “Listing of Events” on this site for details on other upcoming events. The Society hosts a variety of events, such as driving clinics, informal drives, the Orleton Farm Pleasure Driving Show, Winter Classic Sleigh Rally, Lenox Tub Parade, and Summer Fun Day. Fun Day was created as an opportunity for recreational drivers, as well as seasoned whips, to experience games and friendly competition. The members enjoy the social aspect the Society brings to each meeting and special event, where friends get together to have fun, drive their horses, and to learn more about carriage driving.
The Colonial Carriage and Driving Society was officially formed on January 15, 1989. Twenty-five years later, the club continues to grow and offer many exciting activities. Come to our events or join our club and enjoy the history and tradition of carriage driving.
