Our next meeting will be held on February 23rd at 8pm. Welcome aboard to new members John Duffy, Robert Dupee, Michael Caroll, and Sean Kavanagh. Neil Cosgrove gave a great talk at Division 1’s Communion Breakfast. Many thanks to Chuck Parnow and Dan Peterson for running a great ski trip to Belleayre Mountain, a fantastic time was had by all and Patrick Parnow was so intent on eating that he almost missed the bus home. Thanks for the great Division 3 presence at the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celebration Committee’s reception to honor the Aides to Grand Marshal. It is vital that we support our duly and legally elected committee even if the Board continues to shun them. Hopefully the Board will come to its senses and listen to the voices of the Affiliated Organizations who are the heart and soul of the parade.
I hope to see you all at the Emerald Ball and thank you in advance for supporting the journal which is the main fundraiser for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The County will once again sponsor a bus to the NYC parade on March 17th for those that will march with the county, contact Cy Hughes at 914-804-7162 to reserve your seat.
