Special attention will be given to work made by girls from Clinton and nearby towns.

Presented by Richard Lahey.
Richard Lahey, a founding member of the Mid-Hudson Driving Association, presents a program on 19th century horsedrawn carriages and sleighs. The vehicles were collected over the course of fifty years and many are still in his collection. Some are of special interest because of their connection to local Dutchess County residents and others for their use in various movies.
