Our first meeting of this season is scheduled for March 15 at 6:30 pm. This will be a potluck so bring your favorite dish. The club will provide soda and wine. Harvey plans to come on up for this one since he missed us so much at the December party!
We have a lot to cover at this meeting. We need to finalize the season’s events including getting members’ thoughts on a destination for a bus trip. Bring along any other ideas you might have for fun events we can enjoy as a group.
Save the date for our Spring Clinic scheduled for April 15.
Please send any news you may have for the newsletter (new members to the family, photos from events, want ads) to Jen Wilcox at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Harvey at: email@example.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.
