We again would like to thank everyone who has made donations of cleaning products, dish and hand soaps, cups, storage bags, paper towels, garbage bags as well as monetary donations. Our shelves are stocked quite nicely.

  Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2020 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. 



  Coming to you from the Junior’s corner...the girls are beginning to work on their scrapbook pages. Upon completion they will be submitted to the NYS Convention and will be judged on content and artistic quality.
  We are looking to raise some “dough!” April 15th-April 29th the Juniors will be taking orders for delicious Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They will be hot, fresh, and available for pick up at the AOH Hall on Saturday, May 1 . If anyone needs delivery, we are happy to do that as well. There will be a flyer with details to follow, however you can always email or text me if you are anxious to place an order sooner.
  The girls have planted a seed for a wonderful service project/community donation. When all plans have been finalized, we will be happy to share all the blossoming details!
  If any of our sisters and brothers 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. This is a group of amazing young women! 
  In our motto, Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity
