Beannachtai! Hello from the busy Juniors Division. The month of May brought another great service project from the girls. They made gift boxes full of special little things for some of our senior and/or home-bound sisters. There were 10 ladies from D1 and 10 from D2 that received boxes, beautifully packaged, and delivered by the girls. Hopefully, a surprise and bright spot in their day!
The Jr’s are once again partnering with The Broome County Council of churches for the Ramp It Up program. The build will be June 5th. It is always a special project, building a ramp for someone in need. This year is especially meaningful because it is for Bill and Angela Guiton who happen to be the Grandparents of 2 of our very own Jr members!
Lastly, the girls are so excited to announce the special garden project they have been working on. It is in memory of Maddie Shaw and Harper Stantz. It will be at Rec Park surrounding the George F. Johnson statue overlooking the new tennis courts. Many of the members were friends or classmates of Maddie and Harper and several family members are or were members of all our divisions, so this is a very personal tribute to them and their families. The girls have committed to maintaining and caring for the garden year after year and hope it brings joy to not only the Shaw and Stantz families, but to all our members and the community as well!
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.

Meetings Held Every Second Tuesday of the Month
Next Meeting: June 8th at 7:00 PM
Looks like Summer might be here! Stop by and have a cold beverage! The hall is open at 75% of it is seating capacity to provide adequate social distancing. While there; checkout the Bagpipe Artwork and purchase a raffle ticket to win it. Tickets are $5 and the drawing is July 6th.
Soon you will see a lot of activity in and around the hall as work will begin to replace half of the halls heating and air conditioning system. This should not impact our use of the hall as most of the work will be done on the roof. This year the Corporation Board is taking a serious and proactive look at the maintenance and upkeep of our facility and equipment.
We are also setting up timely service agreements to keep everything up and running for years to come.
Hope to see you soon!

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.

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.
