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.
Please check the Bartender Schedule page here for days and times the hall is open.
Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2021 dues. Dues are $40 if paid after April 1st. After that they go up to $50. You can either drop your dues off at the hall (and have a drink) or mail a check to the address above, made out to AOH and indicating "Dues" in the memo line.
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 2021 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.
Beannachtai! Pumpkins, hot apple cider, warm sweaters, dancing leaves.... These are all things we have come to look forward to in the coming weeks.
The Juniors had their first in person meeting after our summer pause. There was much planning regarding our fall and holiday projects, details to come. Wishing all our young women much success in the coming school year. Many of them are busy with sports, clubs, music and oh yes- home- work! Yet they still find the time to participate when they can for our AOH/LAOH. Thanks to those who were able to attend and/or volunteer at the Hooley. What an exciting and fun event, an exciting time was had by all!
Elections are approaching for 2022 and our next meeting is on October 17, 1 PM at the AOH hall.
PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: November 2 will be our annual spaghetti dinner at the hall. Details to come.
Please stop in the hall and check out the awesome job our Juniors did on the scrapbook that took 1st place at the State Convention this year!!! It is on display in the case at the hall, Great Job ladies!!
We are actively recruiting new members for the junior division and looking to our brothers and sisters for help. Please reach out to family or non-family members who are eligible. As our girls age out, it is so important to keep our membership growing strong with the hope they continue to be lifelong members of the LAOH.
Until next time...if any of you know young ladies who are Irish by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of 6 and 18 that are practicing Catholics, please send them our way.
In our motto, Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity.
Vice President LAOH Division 2
