  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. 


  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.


Beannachtai! Happy Holidays from the LAOH Juniors.
The girls are well into this season of giving. At their November meeting they wrapped up some Fall projects and finalized plans for December. Thank you notes for spaghetti dinner donations and letters to Veterans went out. They enjoyed a history of The LAOH lesson and made a beautiful centerpiece to share with their families at Thanksgiving. The Juniors will once again be donating and participating in Wreaths Across America on December 18. Their adopted family from RISE this year is a single mother with a young daughter. Lots of shopping ideas were discussed and the girls are very excited to give to this wonderful, annual cause.

Elections are approaching for 2022 and our next meeting is December 12 at 1pm at the hall. The installation of the new officers will be on January 9 at 1pm. This is a touching ceremony held with the installation of the AOH and LAOH incoming officers.
The girls are looking forward to a Christmas pajama party filled with wrapping, cookies, crafts, and more. A well-deserved celebration of their hard work this past year!

Please stop in the hall and check out the impressive 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.
