President's Message for May 2015


PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis







April 2015

Brothers,


     The Month of May is upon us and there will several important events over the next 30 days.  I would first like to congratulate all of our members who have been working so hard these last few weeks to make our Annual Charity Golf Outing a success.  I attended one of the committee meetings last week and I can tell you everyone is working hard this year.  We are looking very good as there has been a good flow of new sponsors this year.  This is the result of efforts of all of our newest members, and it is very encouraging to see.  I have no doubt that 2015 will be the best outing yet!

     Aside from the golf outing, there are a few things that I must bring to your attention. 

     Our Division was saddened this month of the news that Bob Eggen’s Father had passed away. Bob’s dad had been in ill health for quite some time.  I was personally moved and inspired by Bob’s compassion and dedication as he tended to his father at home for all that time. It was heartwarming to see so many of our members attend the wake. Please keep the entire Eggen Family in your prayers.

     The Saint Columbkill Knights Major Degree Team has announced that they will exemplify The Major Degree of our Order on Saturday, May 30th at The Hudson Valley Irish Center in Peekskill.  The Major Degree is very important and should be achieved by every member of our Division.  I hopefully will have more details at our membership meeting on May 6th.  Please make plans now to be in attendance on May 30th if you have not yet received your Major Degree.

     By now I would hope that most of our members who are planning to attend the AOH New York State Convention have already made their hotel reservations and have sent in your registration forms.  Please visit the convention website at www.nyaoh2015.com where you can download the necessary forms.  The convention is an event that should not be missed.  You can always contact me directly is you have any specific questions about the A.O.H. Convention.

     The Spring A.O.H. New York State Board meeting will be held on Saturday, May 2nd at the Shamrock House in East Durham at 10:00am.  I will be attending this meeting and will have a full report for the entire membership at our meeting at Burke’s on May 6th.

     Our Division also reached an important milestone as we have passed 1,000 followers on our Twitter feed!  We currently have the most followers of any AOH page on Twitter.    Our social media outlets are the best source for up to date information on all of our events and activities, so please follow the Division One page if you use Twitter and encourage your friends to do the same.

     I would be remiss if I didn’t also note that our Charity Golf Outing will be held on May 4th, which is the date of our organization’s founding in New York City in 1836.  Be sure to wish your fellow Hibernian’s a Happy 179th Birthday while you are enjoying your golf!

     I look forward to seeing all of you at The Ardsley Country Club on May 4th!


Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President
Division One, Yonkers
