Fifteen years and counting; that’s what the Joseph McGarry Division in Myrtle Beach, SC is saying and it’s a phrase you will be hearing throughout South Carolina over the next few years when Charleston, Columbia and, close behind, Greenville reach 15 years .The Division Also honored past presidents John Jennings (deceased), Robert Mott, Patrick Reilly, Matthew Tully, Fran Tuitte, Tom Watters, Dix Colbert, John Hands and Mason Luther. The evening ended with the swearing in of the new slate of Officers. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention a few of the members who help keep the Division going strong Brothers like Bill Raphael, John Galvin, John Farrelly, Mike Coleman and Matthew Tully who was a recruiting machine. These Brothers and the other original members of the Division made the Division what it is today.
I traveled to North Carolina to swear in the Officers of St. Brendan Division Huntersville, NC where Past National Director and President of the Joe Dougherty Division was an excellent host. I can only see good things happening in the Southern District We are working on a new Division in Huntsville Al. and hopefully we will be able to form a state board soon
Brothers what a wonderful site the Right to Life march was, there was in access of 300,000 people in attendance and the best surprise of all was the number of young people that were there from all over the country. Maybe we haven’t lost our way. Our Brothers from the DC Board did a great job as always with their President Bob April in the lead. Also in attendance were National President Seamus Boyle and National Vice President Brendan Moore along with National Director’s Jere Cole, Keith Carney and Chris Norris.
May the Hand of a Friend Always be Near You.
