​​​​BROOME COUNTY LAOH JUNIORS… January 2021


A caravan of seven cars with Junior members and families made their way to Pennsylvania to see a forest full of lights. Members had a great time at the Tall Pine Forest of Lights. As promised, it captures the beauty of the season and offers something for everyone.

We are proud to adopt a family again this year. Our members did the shopping for a Mom and two daughters, wrapped the gifts and lovingly delivered them in time for a Christmas visit from Santa.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Christmas cookie/scone fundraiser. The proceeds from the sales supported the purchase of the gifts for this year's adopted family.

Hoping that this new year will bring many opportunities your way to explore every joy of life. May the days ahead bring joy and happiness, and all your dreams come true.

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 your Division President or pick up an application at the Hall.

​ DUES


  Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2020 dues. Dues paid after April 1st, they go up to $50.

  Arrears letters have been sent to all of you. We can no longer afford to carry the per capita and additional costs associated with members who choose not to pay their dues. These monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and off set our operating costs. Your immediate attention is needed to bring your 2018 dues up-to-date. You will be deleted from our roster if payment is not received by the end of June. If anyone has difficulty paying their dues, please let us know as we take care of each other. Also, let us know if you have an address change.
