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.

President’s Message

I start by thanking all of the Delegates for their support at our AOH/NYS Convention. I look forward to traveling our great state and meeting with as many of you as I can.

I would like to thank Charles “Chip” McLean for his leadership the past two years.

I congratulate the new Ladies State President, my cousin, Denise Sobus. I look forward to working with her and her Board the next two years.

I would also like to congratulate all the newly elected and appointed Officers of both the LAOH and AOH New York State Boards.

I must also thank Pearl River for hosting an outstanding Convention.

There is much work ahead for the new Board. We will have a wrap up meeting in Pearl River as soon as all the reports are completed.

We will also be going to Saratoga to go over the contract for the 2013 AOH/NYS Convention on November 5, 2011.

I am pleased to announce that Steve Curran will be the 2013 AOH/NYS Convention Chairman. The local Chairman will be Chris Burgman.

The new AOH/NYS Web Site is up and running. I thank Web Master Joe McDonald for all the time he dedicated to completing this endeavor.

Our next AOH/NYS Board Meeting will be held in Schenectady, NY on Saturday October 22, 2011. The day will start at 9:00am with a Pro-Life Mass. The Board Meeting will start at 10:30am SHARP.  At 2:00pm the AOH/NYS Mixed Doubles Bowling will be held followed by a dinner at the Schenectady Hall. I hope you are able to participate in all three events.
