President’s Message – March 2013

The clean up from Sandy is still ongoing.  This is going to be a long process for some of our members. I ask that if you are able to assist in any way please do. The National Board is still accepting donations.

As National Charity and Missions Chair I ask that all Divisions and County Boards fill out the proper form and send it to me via email or hard copy. These forms also include man hours.

As State Sports Chair, Our State Bowling Tournament will be held in Schenectady on April 20, 2013. The James F. Hayes Golf Classic will again be held the Friday before our East Durham Board Meeting. The Date is May 3, 2013. The forms are included in this issue.

With St. Patrick’s Day comes the Marching Season. Please remember that you represent our Order.

I hope everyone has a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and a Holy Easter.
