Squadron A Association
We are pleased to announce that the Society has secured reciprocal arrangements with the Squadron A Association.
The Squadron A Association is a volunteer, social and philanthropic organization which provides a venue for like minded men and women to continue, preserve and forward the traditions, memory and contributions of Squadron and the Horse Calvary.
The Association’s headquarters is in the heart of Manhattan at a clubhouse where food, 28 rooms, social club activities, lectures and meeting rooms, and conference facilities are made available to its members. In addition, the Association has reciprocal agreements with similar clubs worldwide.
It all started in 1884, during the Blaine-Cleveland presidential campaign, as a mounted political club and later we became known as the New York Hussars. Shortly thereafter we were mustered into Troop A, the first cavalry arm of New York State.
The Squadron was often called out to escort presidents, governors and foreign dignitaries. They served in the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II. During which time their honors have included Congressional Medals of Honor, French Legion of Honor Awards, Crois de Guerre, Order of the British Empire, Distinguished Flying Crosses and many other honors including a Presidential Unit Citation.
Today, they have over 700 members worldwide who continue to preserve and forward the traditions, memory and contributions of Squadron A and the Horse Cavalry.
Their Foundation offers, among other things, financial support related to horse, equitation, and cavalry traditions as well as scholarships to members and their families of the 101 Cavalry.
Members of Squadron A Association enjoy a host of attractive benefits; not unlike those offered by many of the university affiliated clubs in New York – 28 guest rooms with private baths, a library, a solarium, a dining room that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner daily (Monday through Friday) and full-service Pub where members meet friends for a convivial drink at the bar – where a painting of a mounted New York Hussar smiles down on them.
Their headquarters is in a beautiful nine story building conveniently located next to Rockefeller Center and steps from Fifth Avenue. In addition to their Annual Meeting and Governor's Dinner there are several events scheduled during the year. Every year they have an outing to Belmont Track for Squadron A's day at the races. There's a Pheasant and Skeet shoot every fall on Long Island and their Christmas Party is one that could bring warmth even to Ebenezer Scrooge's stone heart.
For some members, the most significant benefit is the reciprocal arrangements we have with like private clubs throughout the United States and around the world. We have reciprocal arrangements with some of the finest clubs in Boston, San Francisco, Baton Rouge and abroad – Bath and London, England, for example. And who wouldn't wish to visit the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club in Paget, Bermuda?
The dues are $300 per year resident and $200 Non Resident.
