Family Christmas Party – Sunday December 4th – Legion – 1 pm Game – 4 30 pm Party
We will not have a division meeting this month which is nothing new – we will have our Annual Christmas Party with Santa. What is different is we will watch the Eagles for those interested and Santa will join us after the game. We will also collect hats and gloves for men and donate them to Old St. Joseph’s. Please join us and bring your kids, grandkids, etc. Please see letter from Colin Cleary below.
My name is Colin Cleary and I am in sixth grade at Sacred Heart Manoa.
I am making my confirmation this year.
As part of making my confirmation I have to prove I am worthy of becoming an adult in the eyes of the church.
I have to do a few service items before my confirmation.
I am hoping to collect new hats and gloves to bring to a Catholic-run homeless shelter in the city.
I would be grateful for anything you can donate to help these men and women out.
I can collect these at the AOH Christmas party with my dad.
Thank you guys for helping me help others!

Home Heating Fundraiser
We are again selling lottery tickets for our home heating program. Harry Quinn has them and can get them to you in time for Thanksgiving. He will also have them at the Christmas party. You can contact him at 610-937-8730 or email him at Harry.Quinn@jefferson.edu. Tickets are $5 a ticket or 5 for $20. This important fundraiser helps heat the homes of people in need in our own community.
Christmas Division Apparel
Do not let the title fool you – we didn’t do division apparel for Christmas although that would be cool. Tim Carroll did work very hard to have coats, scarves, hats etc. be available for order for Christmas. If your wife is looking for a gift for you or you want one for yourself he will be at the Christmas Party with samples and is available at (610) 931-9297 if you want information to order sooner.
On behalf of the Board we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. We look forward to celebrating the Christmas season with you and hope to see you on Sunday the 4th.

McKenna’s Kitchen and Market Opening Sunday July 5th As many of you know, our dedicated division member Brian Cleary and his wife are opening McKenna’s Kitchen on Darby Rd. where the Irish Shop used to be (1901 Darby Rd, Havertown, PA). The grand opening was Sunday, July 5th from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. They will typically be open for dinners as well with the last seating taking place around 7:00 pm. Brian has done so much for the division over the years with generating fundraising ideas, running ad books, getting sponsorships, working events, etc. He has done it all and has always been there for us so let’s be sure to support him in this endeavor. You can go in for a great Irish or American meal as well as pick up some Irish products on your way out. This is a great business to have in the Havertown area.
