Due to predicted severe thunderstorms, the James F. Hayes Annual Golf Outing has been cancelled for Friday, May 5, 2017.

We would like to thank everyone who had committed to play.  All golf payments will be refunded.  We are hoping that everyone will still commit to the T-sponsors as they will be displayed in different locations throughout the weekend.   This money is needed to support the Austin V Carew Scholarship Fund.  
The rest of the events for the weekend will go on as scheduled.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email Mike Byrne at:  or call  516-782-4762.

Additional information on the evening events and on the Mass at the Our Lady of Knock Shrine to follow.

President’s Message – 12-12

Thank you to all who were able to attend the State Board Meetings and Testimonial Dinner in Auburn.

We now have a HUGE task before us. I am asking ALL Divisions to please donate what they can to the National Boards Relief Effort. This money will go to AOH Members ONLY.

Also, if you want to send supplies please contact someone on the Committee to coordinate where and when this will be possible. Thank you to those who have already donated. May God Bless your efforts.

President’s Message December 2011

I will start this report with a thank you to our AOH/NYS Chaplain, Fr. Henry Reid, for celebrating our AOH/NYS Pro-Life Mass. Thank you to AOH/NYS Pro-Life Chairman Matt Nelligan for coordinating the Mass. I would also like to thank Owen Cole and our Schenectady sister and brother Hibernians for hosting our Mass, State Board Meetings and the mixed doubles bowling.

At our Board Meeting the following were unanimously endorsed for National Office: Brendan Moore – President, Judge James McKay – Vice-President, Tom McNabb – Secretary and Charles “Chip” McLean – Director.

I hope everyone is starting to make their plans to attend the National Convention at the Turning Stone in Verona, NY July 9- 13, 2012. I am expecting our State to have a FULL Delegation in attendance.

On November 5, the contract was signed with the Holiday Inn in Saratoga for our 2013 State Convention. Also on that day the final checks and paperwork from the 2011 Convention in Rockland were received. A final report should be completed by the time this edition of the ESH goes to print.

Our next State Board Meeting will be May 5, 2012 in East Durham. This will be preceded on Friday, May 4 with the James F. Hayes Golf Classic. This golf tournament is the main fundraiser for the Austin V. Carew Scholarship Fund. If you have never golfed in this, you are missing a fun filled day. The weekend will conclude with our annual pilgrimage to Our Lady of Knock Shrine for Mass. AOH/NYS Catholic Action Chairman, Peter Durkee, has informed me he is already working on the weekend.
