We hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year and all are healthy (or at least getting there).
Our next division meeting will be held in person this Friday, January 28th at 8:00 pm. At the meeting, we will install our Division Officers for 2022. We will also talk about a number of upcoming events – from the Emerald Ball to the Rockland St. Patrick’s Day parade to our spring golf outing.
We held our second Pot ‘o Gold drawing party on Sunday, December 19th. Once again, the food was delicious and plentiful – thanks to the many behind-the-scenes cooks and to Bill Boera for coordinating the food. Congratulations to all the winners announced that day, and especially to the Pot of Gold committee, as our charity fund benefited from the 260+ tickets sold.
Once again, the Hibernian Christmas Family Fund was an area of great effort and success. Through our fundraising and the generosity of so many, we were able to make Christmas brighter for 26 families (and 50+ children!). As always, our donations and the recipients were kept completely confidential. Many thanks to all the “elves” who made this possible!
Good & Welfare – Please pray for the repose of the souls of long-time members Jim O’Brien (son Jim Jr. is also a member) and Tom Murray – may they rest in peace. Also, keep in your prayers Dennis Toal who is recovering from some surgery. And continue to keep our law enforcement professionals, healthcare workers, and members of the armed services in your prayers.
As always, we pray that you and your family are healthy and safe.
Yours in Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity,
