A Message from NYSAOH President Victor Vogel


Jim Scott, a great Hibernian and Past President of J.F.K. Div. 1, Schenectady County was in a bad vehicle accident last evening. His injuries are extensive, but he is stable. He has a long road in front of him, however I’m told he is talking and being the “Jimmy” we all know …

Please join the State Board and myself in offering prayers for strength and a speedy recovery.
