New York’s Hibernians held their 96th biennial convention in Pearl River, Rockland County, July 13 to 17.
Michael J. McNabb of Auburn, second from right, was elected state president; James Burke, second from left, of Massapequa, was elected vice president; Timothy McSweeney, right, of Selkirk, was elected secretary; and Victor J. Vogel, left, was elected treasurer. Fr. Henry Reid, center, of Port Jefferson Station, was appointed state chaplain.
The convention was a wonderful experience, organized to perfection by A. Warren Scullin 2011 AOH/LAOH – NYS Convention Chairman and his committee. And a big thanks to the Pearl River and Rockland County Hibernians for their hard work to make sure everything ran smoothly. They were great hosts.
