President's Message


PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis



November 2017


Brothers,

     The fall season is always a busy time of year for the AOH, and while busy schedules are nothing new when it comes to the Yonkers Division, I have been somewhat late with the November update due to the many events that have occurred and I finally have an opportunity to bring you up to date on what is going on.

     I am happy to announce that we have completed our Tax Exempt Application paperwork and it is finally in the mail.  I will update the membership once we have received an update on our status.  In the meantime, we have invested in a computer with accounting software that will be used by our treasurer to modernize the reporting process going forward.  This will hopefully keep us in full compliance with year end reporting requirements and this will never be an issue again.  Thanks to brothers Mike Morley and Paul Tuffy for all of the hours of work they put in over the past several months to bring us up to par!

     I wish to congratulate the entire membership as Division #1 Yonkers was awarded a 1st Place Marching Unit Award by the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee at its delegates meeting on October 16th!  This is the very 1st time the Yonkers Division was recognized as the Best AOH Marching Unit and it is a testament to your dedication for proudly representing not only the AOH, but the City of Yonkers as well!  The parade committee had high praise for how we looked on 5th Avenue and I wish to congratulate each and every one of you!  Keep up the great work!

     I was privileged to take part in a founding ceremony for the first new AOH Division in Westchester County in over 50 years.  Please join me in welcoming our new brothers of the Thomas Addis Emmet Division #17 of New Rochelle.  This Division was possible due to hard work of many brothers especially newly installed Division #17 President James McGlashin who recruited many Iona College students that make up a majority of the new membership.  I look forward to having our members get to know them and I am very encouraged to see so many new and young members join.

     I attended the New York State Board Meeting in Pearl River on November 4th and I will have a full update along with State Officer reports for the membership at our December Meeting and Installation Party.

     I am also glad to report that the Division #1 Facebook page is now a “verified” account.  If you visit our FaceBook page, you will notice a small check mark placed near the top of the page.  This “verified” status means the Facebook has confirmed that our page is authentic and legitimate and as a result we will be pushed up the list when it comes to searches and news feed placement.  Hopefully this will result in higher visibility for our Division and will lead to increased membership inquiries.  I am still working on getting our Twitter Account verified so stay tuned……

     I was also privileged to be a guest on the “Emerald Focus” Show which will air on Tuesday, November 14 on Optimum Channel 18 at 9:30pm.  I had a wonderful interview and conversation with Bob Stauf and I would like to thank him for the gracious welcome and for giving me an opportunity to promote the great work of our Division in the City of Yonkers.

     Finally, I would remind all of you that our final Officer Nominations and Installation will take place at our December Christmas Meeting and Celebration on December 6th at the Laker A.C. Club on Lake Avenue beginning at 7:00pm.  I would encourage all members to make every effort to attend as this will be our final gathering before the Christmas Holiday.  Please check the home page of our website where there is a map and directions link.

     I would like to wish every member and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving and to remember to keep in your thoughts our dedicated service men and women who are serving overseas this holiday season.

Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President

Division #1 Yonkers
