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.

New York State Elects New Officers

One of the main reasons the New York State Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians meets every two years in convention is to elect its new board of officers.

The 2011 gathering in Pearl River was no exception.

Michael J. McNabb of Auburn, NY ran unopposed for the position of President, while James Burke of Massapequa, NY and Timothy McSweeney of Selkirk, NY also were elected to the to the positions of Vice President and Secretary, respectively without any competition.

That didn’t mean there wasn’t drama. Victor J. Vogel, who hails from Islip, NY won a three person race for State Treasurer. Vogel beat out Thomas Beirne and John Hyland for the position.

The other competitive race was for the site of the 2013 convention where Saratoga, NY bested Nassau County for the location, which will take place from July 10 – July 13, 2013.

The fully elected appointed board can be viewed on our officers page.
