AOH New York State Vice-President Vic Vogel paid a visit to Dominican Sisters of The Queen of the Rosary Motherhouse in Amityville on St. Patrick’s Day to play his bagpipes for over 130 resident and retired Nuns who live there.  The Motherhouse offers resident and nursing home care for retired Nuns and was founded in 1873.

“The Sisters are such generous people and I just could not refuse the opportunity to play for them” said Vogel, who then walked and played throughout the halls of the residence for those residents who were confined to bed and could not attend the main event in the center’s cafeteria. Vic is hopeful that this will become an annual tradition for years to come.
