Hi Everyone!
Spring has sprung and the driving season is off to a fantastic start! Our April Spring Seminar was a hit but hold on tight to your reins because our annual Member Appreciation dinner is revving up to be an electrifying event that will fuel our excitement for all the thrilling activities CCDS has in store for this season.

Our May dinner will be a buffet hosted by Harvey and Mary Waller. Friends and family are welcome. That means we need an accurate headcount so that we can be sure to order plenty of food for everyone. Jack will return again this year providing a fun evening of music while we socialize. Please RSVP to Maureen by May 10th 413-822-1028 maureengamelli2@gmail.com

Please send any news you may have for the newsletter (new members to the family, photos from events, want ads) to Jen Wilcox at: jen.wilcox@verizon.net or Harvey at: waller.hww@gmail.com.

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.
