​​BROOME COUNTY LAOH JUNIORS

  We installed 2 new members at our October meeting bringing our membership to 20 young women. We had fun at our Halloween party following the meeting.
  We are getting to know each other and enjoying our adventure as young Hibernians.
Thank you to the AOH Men’s Division for their generous donation and to everyone who supported the “Thirty-One” fundraiser through purchases or donations in October.
  We are sponsoring an Election Night Spaghetti dinner to be held on November 8th from 4:30 to 8:30pm at the AOH Hall. Eat-in or Take-out. Adults $10, Child 6 to 12 $5, and 5 and under are free. This is a fundraiser for our LAOH Junior Division. We appreciate your support.
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.

We’ve already paid your pre-capita to the National and State AOH’s. These monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and offset some of our operating costs.
