​​​BROOME COUNTY LAOH JUNIORS

 Our members worked hard to make bird cottages, magnets, and other crafts to sell at our first craft table at Boscov’s Irish Days in February. We also are pleased to offer our cookbook that includes recipes from Hibernian members and friends.
We are excited to participate in the St. Patrick Day parade and events. Congratulations to our President, Anna Gilroy, who is the Maid of Erin this year.
At our meeting in February, as well as getting ready for Boscov’s and parade day, we firmed up our community service project for this summer. We made a donation to Christy Williams to help her with her commitment with Back-to Back Missionary caring for orphaned children.
We welcome young ladies who are Irish-by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of six and eighteen that are practicing Catholics to apply for membership.
To apply contact Amber Youngs at (607) 321-8071 or pick up an application at the Hall.
