Import Announcement From Maureen…
Dear club members,
It finally feels like summer, and we hope everyone is having fun!
We normally do not have a July meeting but due to the fact that we have some significant club events coming up soon, we need to regroup for some planning and coordination activities. Fun Day is coming up on Sunday, July 28th, followed by our show coming up in August, then finally the Tub Parade on September 7th.
The date of the meeting will be posted shortly. So please keep a look out for the date announcement.
The theme of Fun Day is Pirates, so please plan your outfits, and of course the club will provide pizza and soda.
Everyone that was in last year’s Tub Parade: Please keep us in mind for September 7th. We have a major sponsor this year so we will also be able to give our exhibitors money toward decorations.
Anyone who has not exhibited in past parades: We would like to have a few more parade worthy entries to make the parade spectacular. So please save the date for September 7th.
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.
