Yonkers AOH Supports Barnabas Fundraising Campaign


Yonkers Division Supports Barnabas High School Fundraising Campaign



Division President Kevin Ellis, Barnabas Trustee Bernadette Sciarabba,
Division Treasurer Mike Morley and Principal Theresa Napoli


     Members of Division #1 visited St. Barnabas High School this week to help support the schools fundraising campaign in partnership with Youth INC’s Celebration Program.

     Youth INC is an organization that works with New York City youth-serving non-profits to help them develop fundraising capabilities, make influential connections, and receive grants that drive sustainability and accelerate growth.  The Celebration Program is a year long fundraising training program that provides organizations and non-profits with the knowledge, skills, and tools to engage new supporters, raise more funds, and deliver more opportunities to youth.  St. Barnabas was the only Catholic School that was chosen to participate in the program this year.  

Youth INC Selected St. Barnabas as
a Partner School for 2017

     School Principal, Theresa Napoli, stated that funds would be used to invest in new technology for the school such as the Chrome books for students program.

Presidents Message - October 2017


PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis



October 2017

Brothers,


     Fall is in the air and we are entering a very busy time of year for the AOH as we transition from the Irish Festivals of September to the Dinner Dance months of October and November.  We have a few things to keep in mind this month, but first a few items left over from September.

     I would first like to welcome the new members that have joined Division #1 over the past 5 weeks.  Please join me in welcoming Eamonn Goodwin, Matt Mclean, Brendan Stephenson. Paul Tuffy, and John O’Brien!  I am thrilled these men have decided to join and help us grow and expand our mission.  We have placed a specific emphasis on recruitment this year and we are off to a great start.  Please continue in your recruitment efforts as we want to see growth every single month!

     The McLean Avenue Festival was a tremendous success this year and I wish to thank all of our members who assisted us in manning our booth and helping to sell raffle tickets.  Special recognition belongs to Mike Klein who sold hundreds of tickets the day of the festival and who was a big reason we were able to raise so much.

     This month, the American Irish Association of Westchester will have their Annual Dinner Dance at Dunwoodie on October 14th and they will be honoring our Division Chaplain Fr. Matt Janeczko and Ladies AOH Division #19 President Allison Burke.  I hope to see many of our members in attendance so please contact Bob Stauf to reserve your spot.

     The NY GAA Minor Board have reserved the date of November 5th for the 9th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Tournament beginning at 10:45am.  Please keep this date clear as I expect members to make a good showing this day as the AOH is the principle sponsor of this event. There are other events throughout the month and we will cover these as well as inform each of you through the email chain so please watch your inboxes for these important announcements.

     Since this is election season and there are many local races taking place, I will remind the membership that the AOH is a Non-Political Organization.  We are forbidden by our national Constitution from formally endorsing any political candidate, party or platform.  The penalties for violations can be severe so please contact me directly if you have any questions or need any clarification regarding this policy.

     Also, please remember that we will be having our first round of nominations for Division Officers at our next General membership Meeting on November 1st at Clarke’s Bar & Restaurant on Saw Mill Road.  Please speak to me if you are interested in serving as an officer for the coming year.


Yours in Our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President
