We are busy working on our projects to sell at our craft table at Irish Days. This year we will be selling St. Brigid crosses that we made from rush sent to us from Ireland.
Our next meeting is tentatively scheduled for February16th at 2pm. This is subject to whether additional days are needed to prepare for Irish Days.
We welcome young ladies who are Irish-by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of six and eighteen that are practicing Catholics to apply for membership.
To apply contact pick up an application at the Hall.
Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2020 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.
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.
