Thank you to our Junior members, parents, and LAOH members who worked so hard on the wheelchair ramp as part of the Ramp It Up Youth Initiative of the Broome County Council of Churches. Our recipient this year was delighted with the Junior girls building her ramp.

As we recess for summer, save the following dates to participate with your families:

The AOH/LAOH/Junior Family Picnic is on Sunday July 21 at Ross Park Zoo at noon under the pavilion. Enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers and sausage. Take a walk through the Storybook garden.

August 25-LAOH Division-2 Our Lady of Knock Mass-11am with lunch following at the hall.

Our next meeting is Saturday September 21st at 10am. 

Calling all girls ages 6-18 to join the LAOH Juniors Division. This Irish Catholic organization strives to maintain Irish traditions, customs and heritage through friendship and social/charitable events. Meeting topics vary each year as the Juniors promote their American patriotism and have opportunities to research & learn Irish history, study customs as well as charity projects. Applicants should be Irish by birth or descent, Catholic and do not need to be related to a current AOH/LAOH member. To apply, pick up an application at the Hall. 


 Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2018 dues. Arrears letters have been sent to all of you. We can no longer afford to carry the per capita and additional costs associated with members who choose not to pay their dues. These monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and off set our operating costs. Your immediate attention is needed to bring your 2018 dues up-to-date. You will be deleted from our roster if payment is not received by the end of June. If anyone has difficulty paying their dues, please let us know as we take care of each other. Also, let us know if you have an address change. 


  Membership in the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Inc. is confined to men 16 years and older who are practicing Roman Catholics of Irish birth or descent and who are citizens of United States of America or who have declared their intentions to become citizens of the United States of America.

  Associate memberships are also available to those who do not meet the aforementioned qualification.

   It is a standing rule that Applications for Membership that languish without action for longer than 6 months are discarded.
   Notifications for induction dates and times, through the Shamrock Degree, are sent to all applicants.
   Those who have applied prior to this 6 month period, and are serious about joining the A.O.H., need to reapply for admission and make arrangements to attend a Shamrock Degree ceremony within the next six month. 

  Those interested in membership must stop into the Hall to submit an application as they must have an active member sponsor them and sign the form.
