Friday, March 2 – The Broome County Celtic Pipes and Drums will be performing at the AOH Hall around 5pm, stop down and get the weekend started!!
Saturday, March 3 – Reminder that mass for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade starts at 11:30am at St. Mary’s, this is a beautiful mass honoring the deceased members of the AOH and LAOH, and put on by the AOH with the help of many volunteers, and remember for good weather to hang your rosary beads outside. It would be nice to have as many members as we can at the mass and/or march in the parade which kicks off at 1:30pm and there is still time to purchase a sash ($31) from Maureen Bradley, 607.648.8131). The parade is followed by the After-Parade party at Seton, and then Pat Kane and West o’Clare will be at the hall at night.

Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2018 dues. We currently have over 30 members who haven’t paid their dues for 2017. 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. Again, these monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and off set our operating costs. Your immediate attention is needed to bring your 2017 dues up-to-date. You will be deleted from our roster if payment is not received by the end of August. If anyone has difficulty paying their dues, please let me know. We take care of each other. Also, let us know if you have an address change
