Greenwich High School student Jason Bacon, honorary president of the local Mary Bush Society, was elected President of the Connecticut Society Children of the American Revolution (CSCAR).

The local society, the Mary Bush Children of the American Revolution (CAR), attended the three-day Annual National CAR Conference in Arlington, Va., from April 11 to 13.

At the culmination of this event Jason was sworn in as incoming Connecticut state CAR president at Mount Vernon. The Mary Bush Society is the largest society in Connecticut. After a formal banquet reception, there was a grand march with national officers and state presidents including the newly elected Connecticut president, escorted by his sister Lauren Sumner, honorary Connecticut president, into a ballroom.

As the newly elected CSCAR president, Jason Bacon presented the motto “Heroes Helping Heroes” and the state project for this year is to raise funds and awareness of the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. The organization trains seeing dogs for blind veterans and is based out of Bloomfield.

The average cost of raising a guide dog is $45,000 and no financial help is given by the government.
