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.
Congratulations to Junior’s Bridget and Rose Kane and Past Junior President, Anna Gilroy on your graduations. As we recess for summer, save the dates to participate in the following:
July 22-AOH/LAOH/Juniors Family Picnic-Ross Park Zoo-Noon
August 19-LAOH Division-2 Our Lady of Knock Mass-11am (luncheon following).
Our next meeting is September 8th at 10am. Please note that this is the second Saturday in September.
If you have had a change of address and have not notified the AOH, please email Mark Kadlecik email@example.com. This is the only way that we can ensure that you get your copy of the Chieftain and that you get all notifications pertaining to the division. Thank you!
The A.O.H Board of Directors would like to remind all our Brother and Sister Hibernian’s of the upcoming Corporation meeting scheduled for June 11th at 7pm.
This meeting is open to all members.
The Board is tasked with keeping the hall and bar thriving through cost effective means. We do our best to price our liquor, beer and wine at a profitable margin without over charging our members. We are a private club and strive to keep our members happy while considering our overall bills. Other expenses to consider include taxes, insurance, utilities, license fees, maintenance, cleaning and others required to ensure the hall is open and in good working condition for years to come. Your support of the hall is essential to its success. Please visit the hall to enjoy your favorite beverage and engage in some blarney with fellow Hibernians. Also, consider renting the hall for small gatherings or parties.
We’d also like to extend our thanks and gratitude to all who participated either by buying or selling tickets in our annual Luck O’ The Irish raffle this year. Your help is greatly appreciated in making this another successful fundraiser. This year’s winners are listed below.
This Years’ Winners:
$ 2,500 - Kathleen Kane
$ 1,000 - Sentry Alarms Fab Five
$ 500 - Michael Gazdik
$ 500 - Tim Reardon
$ 500 - Kristen and Nicholas Kadlecik
In our motto ... Mark Kadlecik ..A.O.H Board President
