President's Message for June 2017



PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis

JUNE 2017


Brothers,

     Summer is just around the corner!  I am definitely looking forward to our summer break.  (There are no Division meetings in July or August). Division #1 Yonkers had another tremendously successful year and I have to thank each and every one of you for the hard work and dedication you have shown every step of the way.  Let me highlight a few things as we prepare for a well deserved rest.

     I attended the AOH New York State Board Meeting in East Durham last month and I will have all of the reports and information available to you at our meeting.  We learned of a bill in Congress that could indirectly have a terrible impact on The MacBride Principles and the AOH is mobilizing to make sure that effort is stopped.  Information on this bill should have arrived in your email inboxes a few weeks ago.  I would encourage every member to please follow the instructions on how to contact our congressional representatives and alert them to the danger that The MacBride Principles face if The Financial Choice Act of 2017 passes.  Please contact me directly if you have any questions about this.

     The AOH Westchester County Board elected Brian Duffy of Division #11 Tarrytown as our new County President.  I am sure all of you will do everything to support him in his new role.  I would like to congratulate outgoing County President Aidan O’Kelly Lynch on serving 2 very successful terms and we are proud to endorse his candidacy for AOH District #4 Director.

     Thanks to all of our members who marched with Division #1 in the annual Yonkers Memorial Day Parade.  We had a very strong showing and this is very important for our Division.

     The Westchester County Board Manchester Martyrs Memorial Dinner is scheduled for Friday, June 23rd in Peekskill and we need members to submit their journal sponsorships ASAP.  If you require a sponsorship form I can provide you one.  This will be the final event before the State Convention in July.

     The State Convention will be held in Buffalo the week of July 10th.  Any members who wish to attend as delegates must submit their names to me as soon as possible so our County Delegation can have accurate credentials for you when you arrive.  Please notify me if you have not already.

     Finally, I would remind everyone of Danny Mac’s Annual Golf Outing to benefit St. Brigid’s GFC will be held on July 17th at Van Cortlandt Golf Course in The Bronx.  We are very thankful for all the support we receive from Danny Mac’s and we should support those who support us!  Event Flyer can be found below.

     I wish you and your families a very enjoyable and relaxing Summer, and we will see you all in September!


Yours in Our Motto,



Kevin Ellis, President
