•  Nutley Irish President Message

On behalf of the Officers and Trustees of the Nutley Irish, I would like to wish all of our members and their families a Happy Thanksgiving.


This year, I am thankful to be able to serve my 12th term as President of the Nutley Irish.  I am thankful for all of our members, sponsors, friends, and family that make this a remarkable organization.  This organization is unlike any organization in town.  You, our members are the cream of the crop.  Without you, this club would not be where it is today.  


I am thankful for the Township of Nutley and our Commissioners who help reinforce the mission of our organization and give us their assistance.


I am thankful for our community for always attending our events and marching in or watching our St. Patrick's Day Parade.


And lastly, I am thankful for my family and friends for their love and support.


Let us all always be thankful for what we have, as we are blessed to have it.
