  Associate memberships are also available to those who do not meet the aforementioned qualification.

 Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2017 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 


  Just want to take a minute to thank all those who were part of the AOH Major Degree Ceremony held on May 20th. Binghamton had 10 members who took the step to the Inner Chambers of Hibernianism. The Schenectady Major Degree Team did a fabulous job with the ceremony as they always do. I'd also like to thank both LAOH Div. 1 and LAOH Div. 2 for all their help. The women stepped up to help with the food preparation category of the ceremony. They assisted either by donating, baking, funding, serving and clean-up that was required. The food table was decorated exquisitely. This was greatly appreciated by all .. including the Schenectady Degree Team.

  Thanks again .. Mark Kadlecik, AOH NYS Director District 7.
