PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis







September 2017

Brothers,

     Welcome back!  I hope all of you have enjoyed a relaxing summer and were able to recharge the batteries as we reconvene with monthly meetings once again.  Division #1 hits the ground running this month with plenty of events and activities and I will list a few of the important ones here in this report.

     Please join me in congratulating our Division Chaplain Fr. Matthew Janeczko on his elevation to Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish.  This will certainly be a tremendous responsibility and the job will have many challenges, but you and I know that Fr. Matt is more than ready for the task.  

     This month, we will be introducing a strong push for recruitment of new members and growing the size of the Division over all.  I am urging all of you to bring in prospective members to our general membership meeting on September 6th.  We will also once again set up our recruitment and information tent at the annual McLean Avenue Fall Festival on Saturday, September 23rd.  This is the perfect time to join together and help get new members for Division #1!  We will also be holding our raffle drawing at the end of the festival, (raffle flyer see below) so please remember to pick up and sell as many tickets as you can before that day.  Remember, recruitment is the responsibility of each and every member!

     Division #1 is once again proud to be a sponsor of the Aisling Irish Center Dinner at Lake Isle on Friday, September 29th.  We will be discussing this event at our meeting as well.

     The Annual Respect Life Mass will be held at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at the 10:15 mass.  This mass is co-sponsored by the AOH and The Sisters of Life each year and we will also be making our annual donation to the Sisters of Life on this day.  We will be discussing bus arrangements and times at our meeting.  Please let me know if you plan on attending if you cannot make the meeting on September 6th.

     The next AOH Metropolitan Conference Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 30th at the AOH Hall in Cornwall in Orange County.  I would encourage members to attend this meeting as there will be many important subjects discussed at this meeting.  The Hudson Valley Irish Fest in Peekskill will also be held on that day and many of us plan to go there directly from the meeting.  Shapes up to be a good day!

     We will also be looking forward to events later this fall such as the American Irish Association of Westchester Dinner Dance and the 9th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Tournament at Gaelic Park.


Yours in our Motto,


Kevin Ellis, President
Division #1, Yonkers
