The Castle Pines North Master Association’s Holiday Carriage Rides were enjoyed by many residents in December. Daniel’s Gate residents provided a great holiday light show for the carriage ride event. Three homes were recognized with top decorating honors and will receive a coffee cake from CoffeeCakes.com: 6353 Vacquero Drive, 6173 Vacquero Circle and 6222 Vacquero Drive.
Lenora Mundis, age 91, told her daughter that she had to ride again this year. Knowing the event sells out quickly, Mundis’s son-in-law purchased an entire carriage during the OctoberFest pre-sale event. On December 12, Mundis brought her own step stool to ease the climb into the carriage. “It was just wonderful. I enjoyed it so much,” said Mundis.
