Our next meeting is Wednesday, August 21 6:30 pm

Greetings From Maureen…

Dear club members,

Hi Everyone,
We are all catching our breath after a fantastic 4-day show. I think Laurie and Ann might still be sleeping 😋.
Mother nature and the protective powers joined forces and gave us four great show days, while evenings not so much as we had a couple of thunderstorms and some showers right at the time of cocktails/dinner.😱
Once again our club is thankful to Harvey and Mary for their generosity and gorgeous venue, we should be proud to sponsor one of the most prestigious shows in the country–many exhibitors said this).
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.

Maureen

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.
