As mentioned in my email last week, summer flew by and activities and events are being
scheduled fast and furious.
Our next division meeting will be at the Hibernian House this Friday, September 16th at
8:00pm. Aside from typical business, we will have nominations for Hibernian House offices that
are up for election (President and Treasurer).
Welcome to our newest member, Brian Mahoney of Pearl River, who was sworn in at our June
I’m looking forward to “Dueling Pianos” to be held on Friday, September 23rd at the Hibernian
House. See the website for a flier with details. If you haven’t secured a ticket yet, times running
out. Also, note that we will be hosting the Fall NYS AOH Board meeting the weekend of Friday,
November 4th. We’ll have a Friday night social upstairs and the House and the President’s
Testimonial Dinner is being held at the Town & Country venue in Congers on Saturday night –
more to come on all of that.
Good & Welfare – It has been a tough summer on the good and welfare front, as we lost
several members and close relatives. Please say a prayer for brothers Tom Mooney, Sr. and
Mike Higgins (son, Chris is also our brother); John Screene’s son, John Patrick Screene III;
Frank and Jimmy Corrigan’s mother, Mary Corrigan; Dan McDermott’s wife, Kathleen Hogan
McDermott; Sean Murphy’s father (and Pat Murphy’s grandfather), Maurice Murphy and Peggy
Roche’s mother, Ronnie Roche; may they all rest in peace. Also, continue to pray for the
Ukrainians – while they have faded from the daily news coverage their suffering continues.
Please also 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,
