Yonkers Division Donates to Stepinac High School


Yonkers Division’s Donation Helps Archbishop Stepinac High School Acquire New Technology


John Walsh Presents Donation to Stepinac President Fr. Tom Collins


     The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers recently presented a donation to Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains that will help the school to continue implementing its new learning technology platform.

     Division #1 member John Walsh presented a $1,000 donation to Fr. Tom Collins, who is the President of Stepinac High School.  John is a graduating senior from Stepinac this year and is the son of Division #1 Vice President Jim Walsh.


     The funds will be used to purchase new Samsung Chromebooks for student use. School officials explained that new technology is becoming a necessity in today’s learning environment.

“     Since our school uses a blended learning environment where the teacher uses online resources that include Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), digital textbooks, and my Pearson Online Labs, the use of mobile devices is becoming more and more important every year.” said Stepinac Advancement Officer Patrick Massaroni, “The ability to acquire additional Chromebooks will only add to our ability to ensure that every student has the resources to use our digital platforms regardless of the circumstances.”


New Chromebooks will be purchased with funds provided by the AOH


     Division #1 Yonkers has also supported other local Catholic High Schools with donations for computers labs at Sacred Heart High School in Yonkers and Maria Regina High School in Hartsdale.


     The funds provided by the Hibernians were raised at the AOH Yonkers Annual Charity Golf Outing which is held each spring at the Ardsley Country Club in Dobbs Ferry.

President's Message for June 2017



PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis

JUNE 2017


Brothers,

     Summer is just around the corner!  I am definitely looking forward to our summer break.  (There are no Division meetings in July or August). Division #1 Yonkers had another tremendously successful year and I have to thank each and every one of you for the hard work and dedication you have shown every step of the way.  Let me highlight a few things as we prepare for a well deserved rest.

     I attended the AOH New York State Board Meeting in East Durham last month and I will have all of the reports and information available to you at our meeting.  We learned of a bill in Congress that could indirectly have a terrible impact on The MacBride Principles and the AOH is mobilizing to make sure that effort is stopped.  Information on this bill should have arrived in your email inboxes a few weeks ago.  I would encourage every member to please follow the instructions on how to contact our congressional representatives and alert them to the danger that The MacBride Principles face if The Financial Choice Act of 2017 passes.  Please contact me directly if you have any questions about this.

     The AOH Westchester County Board elected Brian Duffy of Division #11 Tarrytown as our new County President.  I am sure all of you will do everything to support him in his new role.  I would like to congratulate outgoing County President Aidan O’Kelly Lynch on serving 2 very successful terms and we are proud to endorse his candidacy for AOH District #4 Director.

     Thanks to all of our members who marched with Division #1 in the annual Yonkers Memorial Day Parade.  We had a very strong showing and this is very important for our Division.

     The Westchester County Board Manchester Martyrs Memorial Dinner is scheduled for Friday, June 23rd in Peekskill and we need members to submit their journal sponsorships ASAP.  If you require a sponsorship form I can provide you one.  This will be the final event before the State Convention in July.

     The State Convention will be held in Buffalo the week of July 10th.  Any members who wish to attend as delegates must submit their names to me as soon as possible so our County Delegation can have accurate credentials for you when you arrive.  Please notify me if you have not already.

     Finally, I would remind everyone of Danny Mac’s Annual Golf Outing to benefit St. Brigid’s GFC will be held on July 17th at Van Cortlandt Golf Course in The Bronx.  We are very thankful for all the support we receive from Danny Mac’s and we should support those who support us!  Event Flyer can be found below.

     I wish you and your families a very enjoyable and relaxing Summer, and we will see you all in September!


Yours in Our Motto,



Kevin Ellis, President
