PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Division One President Kevin Ellis




March 2018


Brothers,

     The month of March is upon us!  This week will usher in our busiest time of the year and there is much to discuss at our General Membership Meeting on March 7th

     I wish to thank Brendan Murphy, Bob Eggen and the entire committee for once again hosting a successful Communion Breakfast at St. Joseph’s Seminary this past weekend.  We also wish to congratulate our Hibernian of the Year Mike Flynn who was so rightfully honored for his hard work and dedication to our division.  Special thanks to our own Kevin Fitzgerald for doing such a remarkable job taking all of the pictures during the event!

     The month of March is also St. Patrick’s Day Parade season and Division #1 will be participating in 4 parades again this year.  We will march in the White Plains Parade on March 10th, Sleepy Hollow on March 11th, New York City on March 17th and of course Yonkers on March 24th.  It is important and expected that all members make every effort to participate in the parades we march in!  (Remember the dress code for marchers is "Sunday Best " i.e. Suits Sashes and Division #1 Pocket Badges) I will be sending out a detailed schedule of formation times and locations for each parade to every member so we are all on the same page so to speak.  Let’s make this year our most successful parade season ever!

     This is also the time of year that the AOH is most visible in the public arena, with that in mind it is the perfect time to ramp up our recruitment efforts for new members.  The second stage of the AOH National Board’s Recruitment Ad Campaign will run in the first 2 weeks of March, so let’s maximize the public visibility of our organization to realize big increases in membership.  Recruitment is every brother’s responsibility so I hope to see many new faces over the next several months.

     The AOH Westchester County Board will host its Annual Dinner Dance at The Mansion on Broadway in White Plains on Saturday, April 7th.  The honorees for the evening will be Joe Brady and Bob Bateman with music provided by Andy Cooney.  This will be covered at our membership meeting on March 7th.

     Please save the date for when Division #1 will host a Major Degree on Saturday, April 28th at Sacred Heart in Yonkers.  We have too many members who have yet to achieve the Major Degree and this is the perfect time to fulfill this important member responsibility.

     Please remember Kitty Geissler in your prayers.  Kitty passed away last week at the age of 105 and will always be remembered by our Division.  Kitty was a Hibernian for 80 years with LAOH Division #11 of Tarrytown and we are thankful to have known such a remarkable woman.

     Finally, I want to wish you and your families a very Happy and Blessed St. Patrick’s Day, and I look forward to marching with you in the may parades this month. Never forget that Hibernians march with dignity, respect, honor and pride!


Yours in Our Motto,



Kevin Ellis, President
