October 16 Meeting Division

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.
