On December 13 of 1636, a direct declaration by the Massachusetts General Court established for the first time in the American Colonies an official militia. The resolution required that all able-bodied men from age 16 to 60 were expected to join. While less-organized militia existed at the time, this legal document brought them together under a formal establishment. This organization today is known as the National Guard.
SPEAKER & PRESENTATION FOR DECEMBER 18
The Danielson Veterans Coffeehouse will have a presentation by NEADS. world class service dogs. NEADS trains a wide range of Service Dogs to meet the needs of people with a variety of disabilities, hearing loss and developmental disabilities. The hearing dogs are trained to alert their partners to the source of a sound. The service dogs for veterans are designed to help the growing population of veterans who can benefit from canine assistance. People with physical disabilities can benefit people performing everyday tasks like picking up dropped items, opening doors and more. Service dogs for children assist those between the ages of 8 - 16 who are on the autism spectrum or who have other developmental disabilities. Each dog is trained to do specific tasks to meet the needs of the child with whom it is matched. They will discuss where they get their dogs, how they train them and how to get a dog and they will bring one of their dogs to the Coffeehouse.
