Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, and supported our Election Night Spaghetti dinner fundraiser. The support of the community, members and all those who came for dinner made this a huge success!
Wreaths across America. Our Junior members will attend the ceremony on December 14th at 11 am at the Riverhurst Memorial Cemetery located at 2500 East Main St. in Endicott. A member of the Edward P. Maloney Memorial Pipe Band will be playing the bagpipes at the ceremony followed by the presentation of colors by the Broome County Veterans Memorial Association and a short presentation. After the ceremony our members will disperse wreaths to veterans’ graves.
Our next meeting is Sunday, December 8 at 1pm at the hall on Main St. We have a lot to do! Following our meeting, we will wrap the gifts for our adopted family, take care of thank you notes, and work on some fun Christmas crafts. We will learn about Irish Christmas music and history while crafting. Please bring a package of diapers to be donated to Mother’s and Babies in Binghamton.
We wish everyone a Merry and Blessed Christmas.

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.
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.
If you have had a change of address and have not notified the AOH, please email Mark Kadlecik email@example.com. This is the only way that we can ensure that you get your copy of the Chieftain and that you get all notifications pertaining to the division. Thank you!
