In May, our Juniors donated plants and flowers and planted them in the Hibernian garden at Ross Park. It was a hot day so we all enjoyed a picnic under the pavilion after we finished.
On June 15th, the Junior LAOH members, with some help from parents, will build a wheelchair ramp through Broome County Coun- cil of Churches, Ramp It Up program. Junior’s ages 11 and older will build the ramp. Our Juniors under 11 will help make lunch for the work crew.
Calling all girls ages 6-18 to join the LAOH Juniors Division. This Irish Catholic organization strives to maintain Irish traditions, customs and heritage through friendship and social/charitable events. Meeting topics vary each year as the Juniors promote their American patriotism and have opportunities to research & learn Irish history, study customs as well as charity projects. Applicants should be Irish by birth or descent, Catholic and do not need to be related to a current AOH/LAOH member. To apply, pick up an application at the Hall.
If you have had a change of address and have not notified the AOH, please email Mark Kadlecik email@example.com. This is the only way that we can ensure that you get your copy of the Chieftain and that you get all notifications pertaining to the division. Thank you!
Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2018 dues. 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.
Our Broome County Board meeting is June 4 at 5:30pm. I encourage all LAOH members to attend the meeting.
After the meeting on June 4th, all AOH and LAOH members are invited to a reception to give this year’s Irish writing contest winners their awards. Level 1 (grades 6-8): Honorable Mention Certificate: John Whoriskey who is home schooled from Broome County.
Level II High school (grades 9-12):
First Place $300: Rylie Greenman from Johnson City High School Broome County
Second Place $200: Katie Wagaman from Binghamton High School Broome County
The LAOH County Board is hosting a 125th LAOH Anniversary celebration to be held on September 21st. More information will be forthcoming. The remaining LAOH County Board meetings for 2019 will be: September 10th and December 3rd at 5:30pm.
