President's Message for October 2016


Division One President Kevin Ellis

October 2016


     Fall is in the air, and we are expecting a very busy month ahead as we have many events and activities to discuss.  First let’s go over our Division’s accomplishments over the past month.

     We had a very successful day at the Annual McLean Avenue Fall Festival.  I wish to thank all of the members who assisted manning our location throughout the day.  We are also grateful to the AOH NYS Board for allowing us to use the beautiful new AOH canopy at the event.  We will also be welcoming 3 new members to our Division thru our recruitment drive that day.  We were able to raise over $2,000 in our Notre Dame Football Ticket Raffle.  This would never have happened without the tremendous work of our Vice President Jim Walsh!  Final report on this raffle will be available at our membership meeting.

     Our Charities and Missions Committee was busy once again as Division #1 was able to present donations of $3,500 to The Aisling Irish Community Center and $1,000 to The Sisters of Life over the weekend of September 30th.  Once again, tremendous work by Jack McDonald, Tom Allison and the rest of the charities committee!

     The entire attention of the membership must now turn and focus on our 125th Anniversary Events.  This includes the Division #1 125th Anniversary Mass on November 6th as well as our 125th Anniversary Dinner to be held on November 11th.  The Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church and will be followed by a brunch at Dunwoodie Golf Course.  The cost will be $25.00 per person.  Our Dinner Dance is fast approaching and we need table reservations and journal ads submitted as soon as possible!  Please bring in your paperwork and payments to our membership meeting on October 5th.

     The AOH Metropolitan Conference will hold a meeting at 11am on October 15th at the new AOH Hall in Breezy PointNY.  Meeting location and directions are listed on our website.  That same day will also be the Annual Chilly Hilly 5k run to which we are a sponsor for many years.  Division #1 will have a Water Station once again and we will need members to volunteer that day.

     We have been notified of a preliminary date of November 13th for the 8th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Tournament at Gaelic Park in the Bronx.  I hope to have official confirmation of that day by the time of our meeting.

     Our 125th Anniversary is only 5 weeks away!  Let’s band together and bring these efforts across the finish line!

Yours in our Motto,

Kevin Ellis, President
Division #1, YonkersNew York

Aisling Irish Center Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Aisling Irish Community Center Celebrates 20th Anniversary

The Aisling Irish Center celebrated 20 years of service to the Irish Community of Yonkers at a Dinner that was held at The Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester on September 30th.

Aisling Center Chairperson Agnes Delaney Welcomes Supporters

The center was founded at small gathering in the back of a pub on Bainbridge Ave in the Bronx to assist young and newly arrived Irish immigrants in the local community.  The center then opened on McLean Ave, in Yonkers a few years later and has now developed into a full service community center that has become a landing point for arriving Irish to the United States.

Kerri Ann O'Connor, Irish Consul General Barbara Jones & Hilary Beirne

The honorees for the dinner were The Office and Staff of the Irish Consulate General, Hilary Beirne, and Kerri Ann O'Connor.  The event was visited by Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, and Westchster County Legislator David Tubiolo.
