18th Hole at The Ardsley Country Club in Dobbs Ferry, New York

     The Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers held their 20th Annual Charity Golf Outing on May 8th at The Ardsley Country Club in Dobbs Ferry.  The event welcomed 120 players who were treated to a wonderful day of golf, food and fun.

     “Our Golf Committee Chairman Dennis O’Brien and his team spend the entire year planning this event and the results speak for themselves,” said Division President Kevin Ellis, “We are very fortunate to have so many sponsors and supporters in the local community”.

President's Message April 2017



PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis

April 2014


Brothers,

     Division #1 Yonkers has completed another successful St. Patrick’s Day Parade Season and Spring is in the air, which means we will be talking a lot about golf in the coming weeks.  First let’s recap a very eventful month of March.

     Division #1 once again participated in 4 St. Patrick’s Day Parades in the span of 7 days!  Thanks to all of those members who came out and helped our Division make an impressive showing.  Special thanks go to the “Iron Men” who braved the freezing temperatures and dangerous winds that we faced marching in the White Plains Parade.  No one can ever question the dedication of these brothers!  Once again our members turned out in large numbers to march in NYC and Yonkers.  I would also like to thank Kevin Fitzgerald, who accompanied Division #1 in the NYC Parade and took hundreds of wonderful pictures throughout the day.  The Yonkers Parade was a special one this year as Timothy Cardinal Dolan was our Grand Marshal and our own Sean McEvoy was the AOH Division #1 Aide to the Grand Marshal this year.  I would like to congratulate Sean once again on this very well deserved honor!

     I would also like to personally thank each member who nominated me to be this years Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal in the 256th Annual NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  It was such a tremendous honor and I have so many memories that I will never forget!  Thanks to our worthy Vice President Jim Walsh for leading the Division in another very impressive fashion up 5th Ave.  I must say it was a great experience to actually watch the Division march up the Avenue this year.  You were all a sight to see!

     The month of April will be a busy one for our Division as we now go full speed ahead on preparations for our 20th Annual Charity Golf Outing at The Ardsley Country Club on Monday, May 8th.  The event flyer and registration form should have arrived in your email inboxes early last week.  Please get these forms filled out as soon as possible as this event is always a sell out.  Hole Sponsors are the reason our Golf Outing is a success and we are always working to get new sponsors!  Please make every effort to get a few more sponsors this year!  If every member were to bring in 2 additional sponsors, we would actually triple the funds raised for our Charities and Missions Program.  We will have additional flyers available at the General Membership meeting on Wednesday, April 5th at The Whistlin’ Donkey on McLean Ave.

     The other very important event that will take place in April will be the MAJOR DEGREE.  This is a perfect opportunity for members who do not have their Degree to finally be made whole within our order.  The MAJOR DEGREE will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017.  Division #1 will provide transportation by bus.  The event is $35.00 for candidates and $30.00 for observers.  Please make every effort to attend this very important ceremony.  Details will be provided at the General membership Meeting.

     We will also be discussing upcoming events such as the Westchester County Board Manchester Martyrs Commemoration and we will also have more information concerning the AOH New York State Convention to take place in Buffalo this July.


Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President

Division #1, Yonkers

St. Patrick's Day Parade Season 2017


Yonkers Division Marches in Local
St. Patrick’s Day Parades

Division #1 Marching Past St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC Parade

     The Ancient Order of Hibernians often refers to the month of March as the “High Holy Season” and for good reason, as the members of Division #1 Yonkers participated in four St. Patrick’s Day Parades within a 7 day span this year.  The Division once again marched with pride and dignity and was also able to help honor 2 members who were selected as Aides to the Grand Marshal in New York City and Yonkers.

     The White Plains and Sleepy Hollow Parades on March 11th and 12th were held despite bitter cold weather with temperatures hovering around 20 degrees.  Division #1 nevertheless proudly marched in both with a proud display of dedication and determination.

     This year Division #1 marched in the 256th Annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade where several inches of snow which had blanketed the city only 2 days before March 17th.  The NYC Sanitation Department did a wonderful job clearing the parade route.

     This year was very special as Division #1 President Kevin Ellis was chosen as the Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal.  President Ellis greeted the Division as they came up 5th Avenue and marched with them as they passed the reviewing stand.

     The very next day, Division #1 participated in the 62nd Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade, where Cardinal Timothy Dolan was selected as the parade Grand Marshal.  Sean McEvoy was chosen as the Aide to the Grand Marshal for his years of dedication to Division #1 and the entire Yonkers Irish Community.  This was a very well deserved and overdue honor and we couldn’t be more proud of Sean on this day!

     The Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade was founded by Division #1 Yonkers in 1955.  The Division now assists the Parade Committee with unit formation and then takes it place of honor as the last marching unit to come up the Emerald Mile each year.

     Thanks to all the members who make the effort to march in all of our parades each and every year!  We are already looking "down the road" to next years St. Patrick's Day Parade Season!

Annual St. Patrick's Day Message


HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!

Today Marks the 256th Annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade



The oldest, largest, and grandest parade in the world!


As has become customary, we reprint our St. Patrick’s Day Message first printed in the commemorative book 

“250 Years of the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade.”



"For 256 years we've marched, through adverse times and weather.  We've marched in this sacred parade through years of occupation, persecution, and poverty.



 We've marched through years of famine, war, discrimination and hate; years of working the killing jobs that no one else would take.

 We triumphed over all with a courageous and joyful spirit that is uniquely Irish.



 Through it all we survived and never wavered; we held the banner high; we never let the standard drop.


 And as always, we marched.



 Today we remember the millions of marchers who came before us, those magnificent Irish souls whose struggles have given us all we have today.  We pray for them, we honor them; and we ask God to grant us the grace to always be as strong as they were.



  On this momentous day let us rededicate ourselves to the struggle.  May we always band together to help each other, and bravely fight to overcome the world's adversities.  May we always hold the banner high and never drop the standard.  And may we teach our children and our children's children to do the same.


Whatever the future brings, let us meet it with the hope, faith and happiness of our forebears.



And always…..LET US MARCH."



May God bless this parade, all who march in it, and all those who work to maintain, preserve and protect the spirit and message of St. Patrick’s Day.

The Officers and Members also wish to congratulate our Division President Kevin Ellis as he serves today as the Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal in today's NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade!
