President's Message April 2017


Division One President Kevin Ellis

April 2014


     Division #1 Yonkers has completed another successful St. Patrick’s Day Parade Season and Spring is in the air, which means we will be talking a lot about golf in the coming weeks.  First let’s recap a very eventful month of March.

     Division #1 once again participated in 4 St. Patrick’s Day Parades in the span of 7 days!  Thanks to all of those members who came out and helped our Division make an impressive showing.  Special thanks go to the “Iron Men” who braved the freezing temperatures and dangerous winds that we faced marching in the White Plains Parade.  No one can ever question the dedication of these brothers!  Once again our members turned out in large numbers to march in NYC and Yonkers.  I would also like to thank Kevin Fitzgerald, who accompanied Division #1 in the NYC Parade and took hundreds of wonderful pictures throughout the day.  The Yonkers Parade was a special one this year as Timothy Cardinal Dolan was our Grand Marshal and our own Sean McEvoy was the AOH Division #1 Aide to the Grand Marshal this year.  I would like to congratulate Sean once again on this very well deserved honor!

     I would also like to personally thank each member who nominated me to be this years Westchester County Aide to the Grand Marshal in the 256th Annual NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  It was such a tremendous honor and I have so many memories that I will never forget!  Thanks to our worthy Vice President Jim Walsh for leading the Division in another very impressive fashion up 5th Ave.  I must say it was a great experience to actually watch the Division march up the Avenue this year.  You were all a sight to see!

     The month of April will be a busy one for our Division as we now go full speed ahead on preparations for our 20th Annual Charity Golf Outing at The Ardsley Country Club on Monday, May 8th.  The event flyer and registration form should have arrived in your email inboxes early last week.  Please get these forms filled out as soon as possible as this event is always a sell out.  Hole Sponsors are the reason our Golf Outing is a success and we are always working to get new sponsors!  Please make every effort to get a few more sponsors this year!  If every member were to bring in 2 additional sponsors, we would actually triple the funds raised for our Charities and Missions Program.  We will have additional flyers available at the General Membership meeting on Wednesday, April 5th at The Whistlin’ Donkey on McLean Ave.

     The other very important event that will take place in April will be the MAJOR DEGREE.  This is a perfect opportunity for members who do not have their Degree to finally be made whole within our order.  The MAJOR DEGREE will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017.  Division #1 will provide transportation by bus.  The event is $35.00 for candidates and $30.00 for observers.  Please make every effort to attend this very important ceremony.  Details will be provided at the General membership Meeting.

     We will also be discussing upcoming events such as the Westchester County Board Manchester Martyrs Commemoration and we will also have more information concerning the AOH New York State Convention to take place in Buffalo this July.

Yours in our Motto,

Kevin Ellis, President

Division #1, Yonkers
