​ DUES


  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. 


Hall Phone: 607-724-5588

Whether you are a human’s mom, a pet mom, a friend mom, a teacher, or a mentor... wishing all of you amazing women a lovely day!
The girls had a super successful bake sale at the men’s sold out chicken BBQ. Well done ladies and gentlemen! Thanks to all baked, volunteered, and bought delicious goodies. Orders for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are coming in and looks like we will have a truck load to deliver.

We are hoping to have our next meeting in person and outside in nice weather.

Until then, 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.

Corporation Corner… May 2021


Greetings from the AOH Corporation! Looks like Spring is finally here and we can come out of hibernation.
Stop by the Hall and checkout the artwork piece that we have on display.
This unique piece was donated to the Corporation as a raffle item to aid with expenses at the hall. It is an image of bagpipes and really needs to be seen in person.
This piece was created locally and has a value of $400. It would look really great in a family room or a home bar
area. Tickets go on sale May 4th and the drawing is July 6th. Tickets are $5.00. Come on in, check it out and have a pint!
