Happy Thanksgiving–Irish America is Alive and Well !

Greetings Brothers,

A we approach Thanksgiving and the coming Advent season I wish to take the opportunity to give thanks to each of you for your continuing commitment to the Ancient Order of Hibernians. 

As AOH leaders in Virginia please know that your time and commitments to furthering the principles of our order are very much appreciated.

I have attached an article which was recently published in the IRISH AMERICA magazine that you may find of interest.

It states that “Irish America is Alive and Well”;  a fact we all know very well.

It is our responsibility to continue to promote Friendship, Unity, and Christian Charity as we celebrate our faith and rich heritage.

Presidents and Financial Secretaries are reminded to please update and submit your Form 9’s if your Division has had any changes from recent elections.

Please also check your Division rosters and make sure all information is complete, especially e-mail addresses.

Our next State Quarterly meeting will be hosted by the Father Edwin Kelley Division in Manassas, VA on January 27, 2024.

A Major Degree of the Order is scheduled on that Saturday after the conclusion of the Virginia State Board Meeting. Additional details will follow.

Please save the date and encourage all members in need of the Major Degree to be there!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and  safe travels for anyone hitting the road!

In Our Motto,


Capt. Robert A. Fay

President,  AOH Virginia State Board

Ancient Order of Hibernians in America
