Message from President Tommy
Flynn - As we begin the Lenten Season
with Ash Wednesday February 10, 2016 we are
reminded that Lent is a time of preparation
for the death of Christ on Good Friday and
His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. We wish
all members peaceful presence of prayer
during this time of reflection, penance and
renewal of the gift of our faith, the grace
of our faith and much more the presence of
Christ in our daily lives.

Attention Members: You may be aware that the
AOH maintains a substantial holding of Irish
works of literature including historical
texts and works of fiction in our bookcase
within the Celtic Lounge. Thanks to Jenna
Walsh, daughter of Brother Tom Walsh and
LAOH member Eileen Walsh, we now have a
catalog of our holdings for your perusal.
Jenna, a LAOH Junior Division member, did
this project to fulfill requirements leading
to a Silver Award in the Girl Scouts. Well
done, Jenna and thanks to you and your
parents for providing this resource to our
Division. Brothers, if a title interests you
please stop by the Hall and check out the
book of interest and return it when you are
done. Please note that this collection is
likely more extensive than the Monroe Free
Library when it comes to Irish works of
literature, so please make family members
who are students aware of this resource!

Each year, AOH Division 1 celebrates a Mass
in honor of the Fallen American Hero for
which our Division is named, Joseph D. Duelk,
Jr. To family and friends, he was "Butch,"
and to all of us, he is a brave American who
answered his Country's call during the
Vietnam War. Butch fell in battle on June
14th, 1968. On Sunday, June 14th, 2015, the
Division was blessed to have the services of
Videographer Donald Kelly who captured our
Mass and Remembrance Ceremony.
