Did you know that The First Company Governor's Horse Guards is America's oldest mounted cavalry unit? They were chartered in 1788 and call my home town, Avon CT, their home. Did you know they have been federalized several times and served in WWI and WWII?  They have provided escort for dignitaries, such as Presidents, George Washington, James Monroe and Andrew Jackson.  Did you know that you can watch them drill every Thursday night in Avon?  Go to www.ctfirsthorseguard.org to learn more about this historic cavalry unit.

Hi, I am Dominic Lofredo and I am a life scout with Avon's Troop 274.  I am currently working with the Friends of the First Company Horse Guards to complete my Eagle Scout service project.  My Eagle Scout project consists of replacing the First Company Governor’s Horse Guards’ current faded sign with a brand new, historically accurate sign.  I will also be placing a flowerbed below the sign to beautify and mark the entrance to the First Company Governors Horse Guards. I am raising funds to cover the cost of the sign, plants and materials needed for the project.  Any unused funds will go to the Friends of the First Company Horse Guards which provides support to the Horse Guards. 

Please help me give this historic organization the sign that they deserve. My time line is short. I need to raise these funds by mid-August to order the sign and have it installed by early September. So please donate today. Thank you for supporting my Eagle Scout service project!
