I start by thanking all of the Delegates for their support at our AOH/NYS Convention. I look forward to traveling our great state and meeting with as many of you as I can.
I would like to thank Charles “Chip” McLean for his leadership the past two years.
I congratulate the new Ladies State President, my cousin, Denise Sobus. I look forward to working with her and her Board the next two years.
I would also like to congratulate all the newly elected and appointed Officers of both the LAOH and AOH New York State Boards.
I must also thank Pearl River for hosting an outstanding Convention.
There is much work ahead for the new Board. We will have a wrap up meeting in Pearl River as soon as all the reports are completed.
We will also be going to Saratoga to go over the contract for the 2013 AOH/NYS Convention on November 5, 2011.
I am pleased to announce that Steve Curran will be the 2013 AOH/NYS Convention Chairman. The local Chairman will be Chris Burgman.
The new AOH/NYS Web Site is up and running. I thank Web Master Joe McDonald for all the time he dedicated to completing this endeavor.
Our next AOH/NYS Board Meeting will be held in Schenectady, NY on Saturday October 22, 2011. The day will start at 9:00am with a Pro-Life Mass. The Board Meeting will start at 10:30am SHARP. At 2:00pm the AOH/NYS Mixed Doubles Bowling will be held followed by a dinner at the Schenectady Hall. I hope you are able to participate in all three events.
