SUFFOLK COUNTY, NEW YORK

Suffolk County Board

Brothers, Sisters, Friends,

You are all certainly aware of the current covid-19 pandemic by now. Projections from its current infection rate to 30 days in the future are truly disturbing for us here in Suffolk County.

In light of this threat, we cannot go forward with our plans for the Thomas J Clarke Memorial or Our Annual County Ball, scheduled for April. We plan to reschedule our celebrations to some time after this all settles down.

In the mean time, stay well, and pray for a quick cure.

It is hereby declared and decreed that the purpose of this Organization, the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America, Inc., is:

  • To promote Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity;
  • To foster and sustain loyalty to country and community;
  • To aid and advance by all legitimate means the aspirations and endeavors of the Irish people for complete and absolute independence, promoting peace and unity for all Ireland;
  • To foster the ideas and perpetuate the history and traditions of the Irish people;
  • To promote Irish culture;
  • To encourage civic participation;
  • To encourage an equitable U.S. immigration law for Ireland, and to cooperate with groups for a fair American Immigration Policy;
  • To accept and support, without prejudice, the concept of free expression of religious practice for the people of the world; and
  • To protect and defend all life, born and unborn.
