We had record participation with 24 brothers in attendance. Two new Brothers were initiated, Bill Beach and Blaise Fortier. Welcome aboard Brothers.
New Brothers Brendan O’Neil, Buck Coates, and Patrick McElwain, received Snazzy Certificates of Membersip (Photos Attached). Presentations by Bill McCarthy on Irish State of Affairs and Division Historian Pat Cushing on the Molly Maguires were very informative. Military update by Brendan Cooney was appreciated by our service members. Even Brother Kilday was happy with the receipt of his special award for his outstanding efforts in support of Christ House.
Many thanks to John & Laura for hosting a great Oktoberfest on 10/14! Fun, food, and lessons in hatchet throwing!
Thanks to our Division and Brother Volunteers, led by Commander Kilday, feeding 60 hungry Alexandrians at Christ House in Old Town on October 12. Awesome to see a young boy lead adults in prayer, blessing the meal.
