Dear Sisters,
Happy, Happy New Year!!!! Here we are, into 2022!

Our Christmas Season was filled with fun! Thank you to all the Division presidents and their helpers for hosting our All-Division Christmas Party. Dinner was delicious and everyone enjoyed a few silly antics! Our division 2 Christmas party following our December meeting was also a great time! Plus, we were fortunate to be able to donate many monetary gifts thanks to all your hard work last year. We had another awesome evening listening and dancing to the Yada Yadas on Sunday the 19th! Thank you, Kelly and Steve Cole, and the Yada Yadas for donating your time, talent, and tips to the local “Big Brother Big Sister” program. We can be thankful that our 2021 Christmas Season was full of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity.

Thank you to all who brought donations for Birth Right to our December meeting. We delivered an impressive amount of clothing and gifts that are greatly needed.

Sunday January 9th at 1:00 we look forward to our new Officer Installation. Current officers please be sure that you have turned in your medals to me. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Families of the Officers are also invited.

As usual, February will be a full month! Plans are

in motion for “An Evening of Local Irish Ancestry” Feb. 12th from 5-8:00, the Dinner Dance on the 19th, Irish Days on the 26 and the Mass and Parade to follow March 5th.

A very special congratulations to our 2022 Grand Marshalls Bill and Deb Burke, our Maid of Erin, Katie Wagaman, and the Parade Starter Conor Heslin. Please watch your emails for details on all events.

Once again, I sincerely thank you all for allowing me the opportunity to serve you over the past 2 years, and especially my Officers that worked their hardest in the hardest of times. God bless you all.

Our January meeting is the 19th at 7:00. Hope to see you all there! Please stay safe and healthy and pray for an end to Covid 19. 

Always in our Motto, Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity
