President's Message June 2015



PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis







June 2015 


Brothers,

     The month of June is traditionally the unofficial end of our Division’s “active” season, (there are no meetings in July and August) and this is also the time when I look back and reflect on what we have accomplished as a group since we convened last September.  I can not properly express in word my pride and admiration of the hard work and dedication that was displayed by our members this year.  You all should be very proud of yourselves!  I have a few things to mention from this past month.

     Our Annual Charity Golf Outing was a tremendous success once again!  If all reports are correct, this years outing will be the most successful in our Division’s history.  The event will have raised just over $30,000! This is due to our members who worked so hard all year.  A special note of congratulations goes to our Past Division President and Golf Committee Chairman Tom Allison, who has managed to increase the amount of money raised each and every year.  Tom is stepping down as golf chairman this year, and I along with the entire Division membership owe him a huge debt of gratitude.  Well Done Tom!  Dennis O’Brien will be taking over the golf committee, and we wish him great success.  Dennis will know that he has our complete support going forward.

     The AOH Westchester County Board held its Convention at the Brazen Fox on May 19th.  Aidan O’Kelly Lynch has returned for a second term as County President, and I was humbled to have been chosen to serve as County Vice-President.  I look forward to working with Aidan and the rest of the board to further our organizations goals in Westchester County.  Thanks to all of the Division One members who attended the installation ceremony!

     June has only a few events and items that need to be covered.  The AOH along with other Irish organizations in the NYC area will hold commemorative ceremonies marking the 100th Anniversary of the death of Irish Patriot Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa.  Events will include a Gaelic Football Tournament in conjunction with the GAA, as well as a mass and ceremonies in Staten Island. Details will be provided at our membership meeting June 3rd.

     The other big event will be the 98th Biennial AOH New York State Convention that is scheduled for July 8-12 in Uniondale, New York.  I know that several members from Division One will be attending the convention.  Those members attending the convention must make sure that I have their names so I can secure enough delegate credentials.  Please let me know if you are going as soon as possible. 

     The Tara Court Major Degree Team will exemplify The Major Degree of our Order at the Convention on Saturday, July 11th at 10:00am.  Our Division unfortunately has many members who are in need of their Major Degree.  I will have registration forms available.  Please do not miss this important opportunity to achieve your major degree!

     In conclusion, I would like to thank our outgoing NYS District #4 Director Mike Flynn for his service over the past 2 years.  Mike has always been a great supporter of Division #1.  Well Done Mike!

     I also would like to wish our good member Dave Miller farewell and good luck as he will be retiring and moving to Florida this summer.  Florida’s gain is truly our loss!  Dave has been a tremendous Hibernian and friend to everyone here.  Good Luck Dave and remember you are always welcome back to New York on St. Patrick’s Day to help carry our banner!


     I wish you and your family a very enjoyable and relaxing summer.  See you in September!


Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President
Division One, Yonkers
