President’s Report – December 2018

President Vic Vogel

It was great to see so many Hibernian Brothers at the November New York State Board Meeting.  I want to thank those Brothers who organized and attended the meeting and the Testimonial Dinner.  I am extremely grateful!

I want to congratulate the Officers of the New York State Board for their continued efforts to preserve and advance our Irish Culture and the Good Work of the Order.  I want to thank the many Counties and Divisions for their participation and leadership in bringing to fruition the Good Work of the Order.  There are many New York State Hibernian events to look forward to in the upcoming months.  Please consult the NYS AOH Website for specific details.

I would like to repeat an objective that I wrote in my last report.  As New York State President, I want to encourage and support all Elected and Appointed Officers of all jurisdictions to perform their respective duties at the highest possible level.  In order to advance the Good of the Order, I will use the authority granted to me by our Constitution, the traditions of our Order and good common sense to ensure your success.  I am asking you to use your term of office to achieve your greatest goals.  Please feel free to share with me any ideas you might have toward that end.  Your success is my goal!

In closing, I would like to wish all of my Hibernian Brothers and Sisters and your Families a Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy and Holy Christmas. God Bless Us All!
