President's Message for March 2016

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis








MARCH 2016

Brothers,

     March 1st marks the beginning of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Season and we have a very busy schedule of events coming up over the next several weeks.  Let’s just recap things that occurred the past few weeks before we dive into all that is in store for us this month.

     Several of our members attended the LAOH Division #19 Yonkers Annual  St. Brigid’s Day Mass that was held at Clarke’s Restaurant on February 6th and it was a great success!  I am glad to see so many members actively supporting our ladies in Yonkers!

     Our Annual Communion Breakfast was held this past weekend and it was another triumph for Brendan Murphy, who has served as chairman of the breakfast committee for many years.  I again would like to congratulate Dennis O’Brien for being recognized as our “Hibernian of the Year”.  We were also able to make a $1,000 donation to St. Joseph’s Seminary as well as a $500 donation to the Xavier Society for the Blind.  Great job by everyone who helped make this event a tremendous success!

     On a most serious note, I have learned that Division #1 member Jimmy Casey suffered catastrophic injuries during the blizzard several weeks ago.  I was just informed of this terrible news this past weekend, and we must keep Jimmy in all of our prayers.  We will have more information and an update on Jimmy’s condition at our membership meeting. 

     Now for the month of March……Division #1 is proud to announce that we will be participating in 4 St. Patrick's’ Day Parades this year.  We will be marching in White Plains on March 12th, Sleepy Hollow on March 13th, New York City on March 17th, and Yonkers on March 19th.  I will be providing the specific formation times and locations for these parades at our monthly membership meeting and thru email notifications.  I expect maximum participation from our membership since this is our 125th Anniversary Year!  Please make every effort to attend as many if not all parades on our schedule this month.  We will once again be providing a bus for The New York City Parade that will depart Dunwoodie Golf Course at 11:00am on St. Patrick’s Day.  The bus will return us to Dunwoodie where we will host a gathering for members and their families from 4-6pm.  Admission is free and we welcome our members who have to work that day to join us there.

     Sadly, the month of March is also the time of year that some retailers make large profits by selling merchandise that is defamatory towards the Irish.  This happens every year and we must stand up and challenge these retailers both as a group and individually.  Please notify myself or any Division Officer if you spot local retailers selling this garbage and we will let them know that this is not acceptable!

     As we look ahead to the month of April, there are several important dates to save.  Division #1 will be presenting the City of Yonkers with a beautiful framed copy of the 1916 Easter Rising Declaration at the City Council Meeting on the evening of April 12th.  The AOH Westchester County Board will host its Annual Dinner Dance and 1916 Easter Rising Commemoration on Saturday, April 16th at The Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown.  The AOH National Board will hold the Easter Rising Centenary Commemorative Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on April 23rd. (Bus will be provided for that event as well). 


Don’t forget our Annual Charity Golf Outing is Monday, May 9th!

     This is the beginning of our busiest season, and I know the schedule would be a challenging for any organization!  Luckily I know that our membership is more than up to the task!

I would like to wish you and your families a very Happy and Blessed St. Patrick’s Day!


Yours in our Motto;



Kevin Ellis, President
