The annual Open House for The 2nd Co. Governor's Horse Guard was held under blue skies, and to temperatures in the 80's. There was something for everyone as line dancers enjoyed themselves while Ronald Moon called the steps to the music played by DJ Tim Richmond. Periodically the music was accented by the boom of the 1841 6 Pounder Civil War canon.
Beautiful Comfort Dog Maggie was in attendance, as were two goats, and horses. The Cupcake War was in full swing as artists enjoyed dining afterward on their decorated cupcake masterpiece. A handmade Quilt of Valor was given to and wrapped around Horse Guard Trooper, CPT Paul Mazzara in honor of his military service. Giving the quilt was Sue Reich, and Jane Dougherty, National Board of Directors, and CT Co-Coordinator of Quilts of Valor.
A 1951 938 Willy-Overland Jeep was on display brought there by the CT Military Vehicle Collectors group. Over at the Newtown Underwater Search & Rescue truck Assistant Chief Brian Solts was giving tours of the equipment inside the truck.
Everyone was delighted by the K9 police dog demonstrations given by Newtown, Stratford, Plymouth, and Ridgefield Police with their incredibly trained dogs. Officer Matthew Hayes of the Newtown Police had the fun job of being attacked at one time, or another by all the dogs while wearing a very hot, and heavy protective suit.
The grand finale was the Troopers of The 2nd Co. Governor's Horse Guard performing their precision cavalry riding, followed by the Cavalry Musical Ride.
Also, goodbye and good luck to PVT Betts (photo 7 with her goats), she will be missed.
