As I compose this message, I am
struck by the number of exciting times and unprecedented events that
our Council has been privileged to experience. The evening of Sunday,
February 3rd was certainly a memorable one. Whether or not you
joined us for the Super Bowl, the Big Blue victory was one that
will not soon be forgotten. Boyd has hosted quite a few Super
Bowl affairs, but never before has one ended in a world championship for
On the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, a contingent of fifteen represented our Council at a different mid-winter ritual. The Annual Charity Drive Kick-off Communion Breakfast at
Not one of Boyd's venerable historians has any recollection of our Council's participation in a St. Patrick's Day parade of any kind. Sunday, March 2nd, then, gives each of us a chance to take part in a historic event. This is the day that W.J. Boyd will march for the first time ever in the Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade. It should be a great experience and presents a perfect opportunity to present ourselves to the community. I hope to see you there.

Boyd will be bathed in green as it hosts its Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Party on Saturday evening March 15th. Doors open at and rest assured there will be no shortage of Irish music, corned beef, or ice cold refreshments. To assist Committee Chairman J. J.

As alluded to in the Grand Knight’s message, the Council was host the first Sunday in February to what was likely the most memorable Super Bowl party in its history. The standing room only crowd, which included the star of a Super Bowl commercial, was treated to a riveting contest highlighted by the underdog hometown Giants bringing home a crown at the expense of the heretofore undefeated Patriots. Thank you to all the members whose unsung efforts made such a joyous gathering possible.
Boxes for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Final are now on sale. Boxes cost $25 each, and $2000 in prizes will be awarded. Entering the pool not only serves to support the Council, it could also serve to fatten your wallet. Super Bowl box winners Brian Powers and Jim Jones can certainly attest to that. Boxes may be purchased through the mail or by phone, and individual numbers may be ascertained by stopping in to the Council on Final Four day April 5th or by phone on that same day.

Many thanks to Free Throw Chairman Bob Ellis for yet another
superlative effort organizing the Annual W.J. Boyd Youth Free Throw Shooting
Contest at the St. Barnabas Gym.
Not only did this endeavor raise a substantial amount of money and food

competition that will culminate at
