Our next meeting will be held on June 29th at 8pm. Welcome aboard to new members Dylan Gleeson, Michael Loughran, and Mark Duncan. Division 3 was well represented on Memorial Day as we marched and then paid homage at the memorial at Braunsdorf Park to the memory of all the men and women who sacrificed all to defend the greatest country on earth, the United States of America. Congratulations to all the division members who participated in the Nicole Draper Memorial benefit for St. Baldrick’s and to all who donated so generously. The Irish Music Festival at the GAA fields on June 9th was a huge success. Congratulations to organizer Meaghan Mallon and best wishes to her and the rest of the Bergen Irish Pipe Band as they compete at the World Pipe Competition in Scotland this summer. Many thanks once again to all who attended and supported. I hope we do as well at our Ceol Mor Bagpipe Competition on August 4th. On behalf of all the Division and House officers, I wish you and your families an enjoyable and safe summer. This will be our last newsletter until September but we will continue to inform you on upcoming events and matters of importance. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please pray for the repose of John O’Connor, Mikel Hieb’s brother Jim, Tom Regan’s wife Julia, and Gary and Jack Coyle’s mother Eileen. Please say a prayer or two for Dan Callanan who spent a while in Hackensack Hospital battling an infection and is now headed to rehab and for Pat Hegarty who is dealing with complications from diabetes.
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
