Our next meeting will be held on Friday, December 18 at 8pm. Welcome aboard to new members John Coyle, James Scully, John Leddy Jr, Tom Diviny, John Conway, Shawn O’Neill, Bill Lacey, and Brendan Duffy. Congratulations (or maybe it should be condolences) to our re-elected officers and to newly elected treasurer Marty Davin. I and the Division owe our gratitude to outgoing treasurer Mike Dempsey for the fantastic job he has done. Congratulations to May Kreider and Ronnie Moroney on their elections respectively as Rockland County Grand Marshal and Aide to Grand Marshal of the NYC Parade. I am also honored to announce that our very own John Leddy Jr, who has proudly served his country in the US Navy in Afghanistan and Iraq, will now proudly serve as Parade Commander of the Rockland Parade. Congratulations and thanks to Chairmen Jack O’Connor and Larry DeGennaro, as well as all the volunteers and cooks who made our senior citizen’s luncheon so memorable. Heart felt thanks are extended to Billy Lee, Phil Sheridan, Neill Acer and the multitude of you who cooked, donated and delivered for our drive to feed local needy families at Thanksgiving. I wish I had the room to mention you all but you know what you’ve done and so does God. We’ll do it again at Christmas and please drop off at the pub whatever you can donate to help along McKeever and Dunne’s Christmas drive to bring holiday cheer to needy families. Our Division 3 jackets make great Christmas presnts, please contact Billy Lee if you’d like to order some. I wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year to you and your families.
Go raith maith agat.
Yours in Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity,
Dermot O’Connor Moore, President
