Hi All!
June is “busting out all over.” Trees and flowers in full bloom.

Don’t forget our picnic drive is fast approaching. June 15th to be precise. Bring your own lunch, or save your appetite for hot dogs and beans once again prepared by grill master Pat.

Our May appreciation dinner was fantastic! A delicious array of food catered by Mazzeos of Pittsfield. Dessert bar assortment from the Marketplace in Sheffield. Many thanks to Harvey and Mary for treating us to this gastronomic delight. Jack Waldheim played throughout the evening, and we also had a first-class bar tender (many thanks to Malcom).

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.
