We wish to thank everyone who came out to vote on Dec. 23rd. As you probably know the smoking ban in the pub was passed by a 2\3 vote of over 100 members in attendance. This decision went into effect on Jan. 1, 2012.
Pete Dunne was reelected as Vice President and John Gannon as Secretary for 2 year terms. (They said serving a term was some thing normal for them.)
Hold the date of Sunday, February 19th open. We are planning a dedication of the improvements to access of the Hibernian House and this date also correlates closely to the 30 year Anniversary of the Hibernian House and the 50 Anniversary of the Div. 3 AOH Charter. We can celebrate all at once.
Anyone who might have some time on their hands, as unlikely as that may be, it would be greatly appreciated if you could help out with some light repairs around the building. Please give Phil a call at 845-406-7228 for more details.
Thanks to everyone for donating to the Christmas fund and making it possible for some families who are down on their luck to enjoy a better holiday season.
The Fat Off is underway, you can hear the pounds dropping, only about 45 days to go. P.S. there is a prize for gaining pounds also (Nah!).
In closing, would you please keep in your prayers Larry McKeever who in convalescing after a bad fall, and Pete Dunne’s brother Robert who passed right after the new year.
Happy New Year,
The House Committee
