President's Message November 2015

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis







November 2015


Brothers,


    I hope all of you are enjoying this Indian summer weather we are enjoying at the present moment.  There are a few things to mention that occurred during the past month.

     Division One was once again a proud sponsor of The Chili Hilly 5k Run/Walk that is sponsored by The North Yonkers Scholarship Foundation.  This year, there were over 380 runners and they were able to raise over $10,000 for The Miracle League of Westchester.  Thanks to all of our members who volunteered to help man our water station that was located along the route.

     The 7th Annual Sean Tallon Tournament took place this past weekend and with over 22 teams and 250 young athletes, it was the biggest one yet!  We are very fortunate to have the support of so many different County Board and Divisions who have joined us in sponsoring this event.  Special thanks to our good friend John Manning who was vital in arranging the FDNY Color Guard & Pipe Band to take part in the tournament.  This event is getting bigger every year and I can tell all of you that our support is most appreciated by the leadership of The NY GAA Minor Board.

     Sadly, as I write this, we are preparing to say goodbye to a tremendous member of our organization, John Egan.  John was tragically killed over this past weekend in a car accident in East Durham. John was a Past AOH New York State President and a good friend to Division One.  Please remember John and the entire Egan family in your prayers.

     I plan on attending the AOH New York State Board in Albany this Saturday and will have a full report at our December Meeting.  We are also planning to participate in the Archbishop John Hughes Statue Dedication ceremony that will take place at The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on November 22nd.  Further details will be discussed at our November meeting.

     All of you are no doubt aware of the changing events that have taken place regarding The NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Committee.  While we are concerned as to what is occurring within the parade leadership, we will not make any official comments or statements as there is now a lawsuit currently under litigation.  Please be assured that I along with the AOH leadership in New York are keeping a keen eye on this and will keep you informed of any new developments as they occur, but until the lawsuit is adjudicated, we cannot make any further comments or statements regarding the parade or the details contained within the lawsuit.

     We are making preparations for our Division’s 125th Anniversary celebrations that will take place in 2016!  Stay tuned for some important announcements!

     Finally, I will wish you and your family a very warm and Happy Thanksgiving.  We all have many blessings to be thankful for.  I for one am thankful for the tremendous support and loyalty the membership has shown me all these years as President!


Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President
Division One, Yonkers
