LAOH County BOARD… April 2021

Thank you to those who attended the March meeting. The next meeting will be on Zoom on Tuesday June 1st.
Consider attending the New York State Board meeting on Saturday, May 1st at Gavin’s in East Durham. It is a good way to learn about the LAOH and the activities taking place in other parts of our state.

Holy Week is approaching fast. Still time to attend the Stations of the Cross during this Lenten season if you have not been able to yet.
Some signs of spring (finally)! Warmer weather and sunshine. 

In our Motto of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity

The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Division II is proud to once again sponsor the Mary Curry Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $500.  We honor Mary Curry who was the first president of the Broome County LAOH Board, serving from 1988 to 1991.  A member of the LAOH in Binghamton since its inception in 1967, she was also a founding member of LAOH Division II.  Generous in her service, devoted to her Catholic faith, and so very proud of her Irish heritage, Mary was most respected and beloved by all who knew her.

Corporation Corner… April 2021

Happy Easter!
There are a few changes coming to the Hall that we are pleased to announce. We are now setup to accommodate 75% of our seating capacity and still maintain social distancing. The Hall will begin opening at 3:00PM Tuesday through Saturday starting April 6th. Stop by and enjoy some fellowship. Don’t forget to support all the Divisions Takeout Events.

Happy Spring to All!! 


  Once again, I’d like to thank all the members who have paid their 2021 dues. Dues are $40 if paid after April 1st. After that they go up to $50. You can either drop your dues off at the hall (and have a drink) or mail a check  to the address above, made out to AOH and indicating "Dues" in the memo line.

  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 2021 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. 



 Happy Spring f
rom the LOAH Juniors. The girls have 2 delicious fundraising events this month. The first is a bake sale in conjunction with our Men’s Division chicken BBQ on April 17th. Please check out all the home-made goodies after you grab your chicken to go.
 The second is a pre-order for scrumptious Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. Please see enclosed flyer for all the specifics. Let us support our juniors and treat ourselves...we have all spring to walk off the calories!
 The girls were invited to a zoom meeting on March 20th by our national LAOH Vice President, Marilyn Madigan. There were several states and junior divisions in attendance. What a great way to connect and share with our fellow sisters. There was some wonderful brainstorming, and it was decided that thiswill become a quarterly meeting.
 We look forward to what warm weather and April showers bring. The girls have many things in the works, and we will keep you posted! Until next time...if any of you know young ladies who are Irish by birth/descent/adoption between the ages of 6 and 18 that are practicing Catholics, please send them our way. 

  In our motto, Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity
