From the Desk of Our National President:
Cynthia M. Maleski
Dear Fellow Branch Officers and Members:
Happy Fourth of July and Independence Day! We celebrate the day when our brave, courageous leaders met in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to sign a document now called "The Declaration of Independence" where they bravely declared that every person has a right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." What lofty inspirations and goals that we continue to stand for and aspire to today.
We also celebrate the Feast Day of the Patron Saint of our society, St. Ann (St. Anne) on July 26th. St. Ann is the mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary and grandmother of Jesus. A number of our districts and branches celebrate this day with their own celebrations, usually including Mass, lunch and joyous fellowship. St. Ann has been our Patron Saint since our founding in 1892.
