  • Heads up!!! Date Change: CCDS Christmas Party Sunday, December 3 5:00pm

Hi Everyone,

Heads up everyone!!!

We are changing the Christmas party date to Sunday, December 3rd at 5:00 pm.
Harvey’s departure to Florida is delayed, so if we can all get together for the Holiday party on that Sunday, both he and Mary can come.

We are once again having our annual Christmas party at the new barn. It will be a potluck. Since the last two potluck dinners were exceptional, let’s try and outdo them. We will have music throughout the evening and a very brief business meeting to confirm the slate of officers and activities for next year.

Please rsvp to Maureen to let her know you are coming and what you plan to bring for potluck. 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.
