New Business


  1. An informal request for financial support for 1GHG was received by e-mail and addressed to Ken Nelson. We discussed the apporiate way for the Horse Guard to request support which should includes supporting documentation of yearly expenses and income so the 501 can determine support they can reasonably provide. Due to new leadership at First Company Governorís Horse Guard is was decided that Steve Meltzer would meet with the Major Judice and his officers to once again explain history and purpose of the 501 along with documentation needed to request funds. Once this meeting has taken place we will discuss the purpose of the 501 with the whole troop once again.



Meeting adjourned @ 22:00 hrs
