Thanks to all who helped make our Christmas Party for very special people such a success. Don’t miss out on a great time and a chance to win 12 grand in cash prizes at our final Pot O’Gold Drawing party on December 18th. Please join us on St. Stephen’s night, December 26th for a traditional Wren Night. It should be a blast.
Ed O’ Dea is running a bus trip to the new AOH Hall in Roxbury on January 21st. Our Brothers of AOH DIV 21 recently opened Hibernian House 21 in Roxbury/Breezy Pt, Queens. They have come a long way since the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. We are planning a luncheon trip to Hibernian 21 on January, leaving at 12:00 PM. There is a sign-up sheet at the Pub. I know this is a busy time, but we need to know what our numbers are. If you do not have time to sign up at the Pub, kindly call Eddie O’Dea at 917-974-9659.
Sign up early for our ski trip to Belleayre Mountain on February 4th.
Dan Callanan reports the following Good and Welfare News…Please say a prayer for the repose of the soul of “Belfast Richie” Stewart’s grandson Liam. Ray Gallagher spent about a week in Englewood Hospital recovering from an asthma attack, Jack Cunningham’s bride Margaret is recovering at home after a bout with the “C”, John Gannon underwent cataract surgery on one eye and is due back in a week or so to have the same done on the other eye. Another prayer is in order for Ray Gallagher’s son Brian who is scheduled for serious heart surgery at the Mayo clinic next month. Thank you goes out for all the help during our Senior Citizens Thanksgiving Luncheon, especially to the local high schoolers who earned their Community Service stripes.
As always, please remember to say an extra prayer or two for our wounded warriors and their families.
Yours in Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity,
Dermot O’Connor Moore, President
