President’s Message

The spring NYS Board Meeting is behind us. I would like to thank Fr. Henry Reid for saying the Mass and Peter Durkee for his work setting up the weekend.

By now, I hope everyone has their National Convention Delegates lined up, rooms re-served and packages purchased. I look forward to a FULL delegation. Anyone who would like to assist with the hospitality room should see Jim Burke at the Turning Stone.

All County and Division Presidents should have received a letter and flier from AOH/NYS Pro-Life Chairman, Matt Nelligan, and myself. Any donation you can make to Camp Esther would be greatly appreciated.

In closing, I would like to thank the New York State Board for giving me their unanimous endorsement for the office of AOH National Director.
