What we're about

Carlisle MINI Motoring Club was formed in Carlisle Pennsylvania by Santiago Gabela and his wife Lois over a decade ago. Their first attempt to set up the club and develop an active membership was a slow process. Over the years our little (MINI) club has grown. We now have more than 250 members. One imperative is a love of MINIs. What is a Carlisle MINI Motoring Club member? Whatever YOU want it to be! Our passion for our MINIs is the singular common ground that we all share, aside from that we are all individuals with many other varied interests. We are a loose knit bunch of MINIacs and that's the way we like it! Join us at one of our events...some large...some small, but all with a focus on MINIs and having fun. Now MOTOR ON!

The 110th Observance of Ground Hog Day

Alexander King Nature Preserve

Once again, a slumbering groundhog will awaken and make his prognostication. In honor of this momentous occasion, the Slumbering Groundhog Lodge of Quarryville invites the community to its 110th observance of Groundhog Day on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Chateau in the Valley of White Rock, south of Quarryville. Known worldwide (or at least in Lancaster County) for the annual weather forecast that predicts an early spring or six more weeks of winter, the lodge will give this year's forecast from atop the Pinnacle of Prognostication (a manure spreader). Festivities will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the ceremonial parade from the covered bridge. Coffee and doughnuts will be served! https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/ddBiosUO6O8a6qqZ4u1cuOz6mKZxTZyRviqw8MvFMavnRnpZfKgEKBIts9OgFRHWDXm8tHUa7l-LnzrzkoneqveqxV28dAi4dBV-JovYeijDNpA39pHjssl8rEU-pFn5uj-RQ1bgGeokbLYT9g Making the pronouncement will be Hibernating Governor Richard M. Rankin, following consultation with Octorara Orphie, the club's groundhog mascot, and hearing groundhog sighting reports from a half-dozen observation squads. Remarks will follow accompanied by the Groundhog Marching Band. Every year, a new class of “babies” is inducted into the lodge. Those who will embark on “an odyssey into the prophetic world of Arctomanciferial Predictification. The “babies” will undergo baptism by fire and water, meaning that one lucky inductee will be dunked into the icy waters of the Octorara Creek, and then a cannon will be fired over the baby's hindmost parts. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/yrM0bFT3eGprESUp6DLO2knWKTUVPqXnA9jl951TP2t92OfosJj_nDExTsaISSnyqwTYEzdhl01bAbINbX4TdczahZtUN9dIaiY_OVM4DyP9R84quMXv7FLxbXwJyG28jW51_jnSK5bcb2od4A What will Octorara Orphie predict this year??
