Change of Address

 If you have had a change of address and have not notified the AOH, please email Jeff Largue.
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!


  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. 


 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 

  We are always updating the AOH Men's membership records and request any AOH current member to E-mail ( their name, address, home and/or main phone #, or call Joe at 607-204-0332 or 607-204-0332. 
I/we will be calling members who don't contact us to confirm the same data. This information is for AOH membership and communications only and that EMAILS will not be shared for any other purpose. 
Thanks! in our MOTTO,

-Junior Blessing

May the children of Ireland here today be an example of the greatness that is on the way.
May they grow in Unity, Friendship, and Love and be blessed with the Spirit of the Lord up above.
May they be blessed with imagination to do many good deeds; these girls are out future, the next generation to lead. We hope that we do justice as we lead your way, because the LAOH will be yours to take over one day.
The pride that we feel for our Juniors is strong; their fresh new ideas are what we long.
As we grow older and look at the years behind, the new generation of LAOH is what we will find.
A blessing is what we want to give to each of you.
But the blessing is ours to have these Juniors with their Irish smiles so true.

New members are always welcome. Young ladies who are Irish-by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of six to eighteen that are practicing Catholics can apply for membership. To apply contact Amber Youngs at (607) 321-8071 or pick up an application at the Hall. 

Meetings Held Every Third Tuesday of the Month ~ 7:00 pm

 Thank you to everyone who contributed to a successful Parade Day! The mass at St. Mary’s was beautiful, and the weather certainly cooperated for our Parade Offi- cials—Grand Marshal Marie Davenport, Maid of Erin Marlaina Bartolillo, and Official Police Starter Investigator Alex Legos. The Parade, and the Seton Party, were a big success! .

The LAOH County Breakfast will be held on Sunday, June 3, from 8 a.m. – noon. This is a date change to avoid conflicts with other breakfasts going on throughout the community. Please come assist with our County fundraiser. If you cannot work, please come join us for food and friendship.

If you are interested in attending the N.Y.S. Board Meeting in East Durham on May 5, please contact Sue Messina.

The LAOH County Board meetings for 2018 are June 5, September 11, and December 4. Meetings will begin at 5:30. Everyone is reminded not to park in McCormack’s before 7 p.m.
