Super Bowl Party - Sunday Feb 4th
Members and our friends and families are welcome to join us on Sunday, February 4th, for our annual Super Bowl party!
What better way to watch the Big Game than on our big screens, surrounded by good company, guessing just how the Patriots will cheat this time, and all while enjoying a beverage and some tasty food at our cozy-warm council?
Our lounge will be open this Friday evening (tonight) for pre-Super Bowl fun and activities.
On Sunday, we'll be open at 3 p.m. for the pre-game shows. Our lounge will be providing some food, including wedges from Carmel Bagel Deli. But since our kitchen is out of commission during renovations, everybody is encouraged to bring a hot or cold dish, or a dessert, for the community buffet table.
Super Bowl Sunday has become a great family-friendly tradition at our council, and this year will prove to be another event you won't want to miss. Join us!

Lenten Fish Fry Fridays Begin Feb. 16th
Our wildly popular Fish Fry Fridays begin again at our council on Friday, February 16th, from 5-8 p.m.! We'll have them every Friday in Lent except for Good Friday. Our addition of weekly specials to our menu proved so popular last year that we're doing them again this year. There's no better way to have a great Lenten meal every Friday night, while supporting great charities, than to bring the family to our Fish Fry. So mark your calendar!

More Upcoming Events 
  • Our December membership meeting will be Tuesday, February 13th at 7:30 p.m. Join us for dinner at 6:30 and stay for the meeting. We will be discussing and voting on the resolution to approve the expenditure of council funds to make improvements in the kitchen, and we will also discuss the potential rental of our facilities for temporary use during part of the day on weekdays as a senior "friendship center." As always, it will be brief but worth your while to attend! 
  • Over the past few years, officers and members of our council have made a point to get together to attend the 7:30 p.m. Ash Wednesday Mass at St. James the Apostle Church. Let's keep that tradition going this year, on Wednesday, February 14th. Meet at the council by 7 p.m., and we'll walk over to the church as a council. Keep in mind that the second principle of our order is Unity, so please join us and bring your family! 
  • Join us in marching in the 2018 Northern Westchester-Putnam Saint Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 11th, along Route 6 in Mahopac. This year's Grand Marshal is Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell. The parade steps off at 2 p.m., and we will announce the line-up information as we get closer to the parade date.
    We are proud to once again be a prime sponsor of this parade, which is the third largest in New York State and is in its 42nd consecutive year. This parade is meant to recognize and celebrate Irish culture, heritage and pride, for those who have emigrated here from the Emerald Isle, the Irish-American community, as well as those who are Irish in spirit!  There will be numerous organizations, bands, clubs, patriotic groups, Irish dancers, and a vast array of participants showing their support of the Irish community.
    As always, we will have a corned beef luncheon and reception at our council after the parade. This event is one of the highlights of our social calendar, so don't miss it!
Check our Upcoming Events page for more information on these and other events.

Patio Tile Fundraiser Under Way - Order Today!

We received the first two shipments of wall tiles, and they are beautiful! You can see them on the wall of our private, fence enclosed patio behind our building, adjacent to the County parking lot for use with Council and rental functions.  This outdoor space is multi-functional and family friendly, and has already become a tremendous asset to our building.


We have two sizes of tile to choose from: 8x8" for $75 and 12x12" for $125. Our second order has been placed and our third order is in progress, so get in your tile purchase form to Mike Bock today. Please download and complete this form and return it with your payment as soon as possible.


If you have any questions, please feel free to Contact PGK Jonathan at 646-525-9536 or  jonathanbcfh@gmail.com for more information.


The remodeling of our patio and the success of this fundraiser are dependent on you!  Please prayerfully consider purchasing tiles engraved in memory or in honor of your loved ones and special intentions.
