NY State Officers and Host Committee members in Buffalo, New York

Members of the NYS AOH Executive Board along with NYS LAOH President Karen Keane, met with members of the Buffalo Convention Committee to observe preparations being made for the 99th Biennial AOH New York State Convention.

The Convention is scheduled for the week July 11-15 in 2017. The local committee provided the State Board with details of organizing an event that is expected to attract hundreds of delegates from across the entire state. The Host Committee then took the visiting State Officers on a tour of the hotel and facilitated a planning meeting with hotel staff.

The visitors came away impressed with the tremendous work being done and all indications point to a very successful and enjoyable event. Booking and reservation details for the convention will be posted on this site as soon as they become available.

Huge crowds at The Annual McLean Avenue Festival in Yonkers

The 6th Annual McLean Avenue Fall festival took place this past weekend in Yonkers. The festival attracted thousands of people who enjoyed a day along “The Emerald Mile” located in one of the densely Irish populated neighborhoods in the country.

The event presented a great opportunity for the AOH to reach out the local community and attract new members.

AOH Division #5 Woodlawn/Bronx had an information table and reported an enthusiastic response to their recruitment drive.
