Events of Interest in Orange County



AOH members of Division 1 and Division 4 of Orange County, New York attended sunrise Memorial Day services at seven Cemetery and Monument locations in Goshen, New York. At each location a prayer was recited for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice followed by piper playing Amazing Grace and then a twenty-one gun salute by members of the American Legion. While visiting the Orange County Veterans Cemetery members paid their respects at the gravesite of 1st. Lt, Louis Allen who died in Iraq and is the namesake of the first AOH Junior Division in Orange County. A decade of the Rosary was said by members along with his parents who were in attendance.

Greetings Brothers,

There will be a Shamrock and Major Degree session held in January in Albany, NY.

It is a part of your duty as a Hibernian to take the Degrees of our Order.  If you already have your Shamrock Degree, you are eligible to take the Major Degree.

If you do NOT have your Shamrock Degree, there will be one offered prior to the Major Degree.

If there is sufficient interest, the County may charter a bus and you can get a ride to and from for a modest additional fee.  If you would be interested in going by bus, please indicate in a email.

Particulars are as follows:

A major degree ceremony conferred by the

Schenectady Major Degree Team

Date: Sunday January 25, 2015

Time: 12:00 pm for candidates; 12:30 pm for observers

Place: Albany AOH Hall, 375 Ontario St. Albany NY

Price: $20.00 for candidates; $10.00 for observer (dinner to be served following ceremony)

Opportunities to take the Major Degree are few and far between.  It is a great experience and will help you understand better what it means to be a Hibernian.  I heartily recommend you make this investment in yourself as a Hibernian and receive your Major Degree!

In our Motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity,

Kevin Moore, President,  AOH Orange County Board

The LAOH County Board thought it would be a nice idea to have a get together/fundraiser before we break for the summer months.  How this fundraiser works is, you come to the Park Restaurant, order anything off the menu, and the restaurant will contribute a certain percentage of the individual's bill back to the LAOH.  Also, there will be raffles.

September 12th Division meeting on Friday, . At this meeting, we will be draping our Char-ter in memory of our deceased Brother, John Brophy, Jr. John was a past Board officer and is the son of Past President John Brophy, Sr. I ask all Brothers who are able to attend do so and pay tribute to John. We will also be discussing other Division business, including upcoming events. Please make every effort to attend this meeting.

Saturday, September 13th, we will have our annual Orange County AOH Picnic, at Division 2 in Cornwall. The event starts at 1 PM and promises to be a great event, so please mark your cal-endars. As always, we can use assistance at this event, including assisting Tom McCarthy at the front door, manning the grill, and helping out in the parking lot directing folks where to park. If you can spare an hour or two please let me know at ganderson@aohdiv1.org. For further infor-mation on the picnic please see the enclosed flyer.

On Saturday, September 20th, our Hall will play host to a fundraiser for the LAOH, a Dart Tour-nament featuring professional dart player Jim Widmayer, brother of LAOH Board Member Barba-ra Slifkin. It promises to be a great event. Please see the attached flyer or Brother Jimmy Mac for more information about this event.

On October 5th we will be having our Communion Breakfast. Mass this year will be 9 AM at St. Anastasia's in Harriman, with breakfast to follow at the Hall. We are planning this to be a county event, so please come to mass in Harriman and represent our great Division!

Rounding out the immediate future, we will be having our October meeting on Friday, October 10th, so please also plan to attend that meeting also. As always, our Celtic Lounge is open and please come by and sample some of the great beer on tap that Ken has been pouring.
