62 Mile Ride
Family Fun 11 Mile Ride
Last year's event was an enormous success. Eighty-eight riders of all ages pushed off from Woodstock Elementary School and rode along several routes of varying lengths, visiting scenic and historic graveyards along the way. One of the children on the family ride wasoverheard to say, " this is so much fun, I wish we could do this every day!" So fitting a response to a perfect day and one that benefits Woodstock's school children!
We hope to see you all this year!

These beautiful pewter ornaments, designed by Daryl Hartman of Woodstock and fabricated by Woodbury Pewterers are available at $10.00 for the benefit of WEF programs. The first ornament in the WEF series was introduced in 2007 and depicts the Main Exhibition Hall at the Woodstock Fair. The 2012 ornament features Quasset School. Past years have featured the Roseland Cottage (2008) and Woodstock Academy (2009). The undated ornaments make great teacher gifts and stocking stuffers.
