A former Lowellian, Denis Taylor, brought to our attention in June of 2007 the fact that we had nothing on our website concerning the various “gardes” that were such an important part of our history. He took it upon himself to research this subject and we thank him for sharing with us his discoveries. You may access his website by visiting:


There, in the Members List, you will find information on various “gardes” that existed in Lowell, such as:

Charette’s Cadets

Garde d’Honneur

Garde Domremy

Garde Frontenac

Garde Independente

Garde Notre Dame

Garde Rochambeau

Garde Sacre Coeur

Garde St. Joseph

Garde St. Louis

Garde Ste Jeanne d’Arc

Garde Ste Marie

….and other non-French Guards from Lowell and the area.

Thank you, Denis.
