The NEW CUTTER EXHIBIT will be shown in honor of long-time Afton resident Kenn Kopitzke.

Kenn Kopitzke’s favorite hobby was to purchase and restore antique winter sleighs or cutters. He spearheaded the Cutter Exhibit. Sadly he passed last month.
Included in our Cutter/Sleigh Exhibit will be the Restoration of a scale model of the Original 6-Horse Budweiser Clydesdale Hitch and Beer Wagon by Carol Gross.
Share the love of carriages and carriage driving and honor our friend Kenn.
