Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2018 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.
No updates for December.
Yours in Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity,
Suzanne Gorman, Messina

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.
New Members Welcome
Calling all girls ages 6-18 to join the LAOH Juniors Division. This Irish Catholic organization strives to maintain Irish traditions, customs and heritage through friendship and social/charitable events. Meeting topics vary each year as the Juniors promote their American patriotism and have opportunities to research & learn Irish history, study customs as well as charity projects. The girls can participate in the Irish Writing Contest that provides monetary rewards to the winners locally, statewide and nationally and are eligible to apply for scholarship grants available through The Mary Curry Memorial Scholarship. Applicants should be Irish by birth or descent, Catholic and do not need to be related to a current A.O.H/LAOH member. To apply contact Amber Youngs at (607) 321-8071 or pick up an application at the Hall.
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.
