Our next meeting will be held on Friday, October 26th at 8:00 pm, at which there will be nominations for division officers and elections of House officers. We will also select our Aide to Grand Marshal and Battalion Commander for the 2013 Rockland parade. Welcome aboard to new members Brian Meehan and Chris Smith. Our first drawing party is coming up on Nov. 11th so please get your Pot O’Gold raffle ticket now and support all our numerous charities and scholarships. Stay posted for more info on Sean Walsh and John Crilley’s members-only Football Sunday upstairs at the Hibernian House on November 18.
Dan Callanan reports the following Good and Welfare news…Please say a prayer for the repose of the souls of: Pat Moroney’s brother Frank, Al Hogg’s bride Jacqueline, and another I forgot to mention last month, Frank Moran’s bride Loretta. Some good news is in order for Larry Kaine who is now at home on a path to complete recovery and can receive your phone calls and good wishes. Both May & Bobby Kreider are coming along very nicely after their respective operations and we expect Bob to repossess his vacant barstool. Charlie Murphy’s bride Pat is recovering from surgery for a herniated disk. Please keep in your prayers Brendan Malley who took a fall at home and is recovering at Helen Hayes cardiac unit.
Finally, after a year at Summit Park, Larry “Squire” McKeever is back home where he’ll be able to see his grandchildren. Also on a brighter note, during their monthly trips to Inwood, Warren Hennessey exclaimed to Jim Finn and their other buddies that he couldn’t believe he was 70 years old. Frank Farrelly had to pull out of a golf trip to Walkill because he injured his shoulder the previous day pilfering apples at the Apple Greens course…a misdemeanor offense for which he has hired the firm of Schlomo and Schlomo to represent him. Please remember our wounded warriors. Yours in Friendship, Unity & Christian Charity
