Greetings From Maureen…

Dear club members,
It’s Holiday time! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to join us for our Holiday party Sunday, December 8th, 5-8 pm at the Devonfield Inn.
The inn will be beautifully decorated for the holidays and our hosts will be serving hors d’oeuvres (hot and cold), wine, cheese, and dessert. There will be Christmas piano music to help us get into the spirit.
We invite our friends in the Saratoga club to join us as well.
Cost is $20 per person, please call Maureen by December 1st 413-243-3407.

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.
