On Sunday, November 29, 2020  the Suffolk County St. Patrick’s Division 2 AOH Juniors in Babylon, under the direction of Vice President Dennis Harty held their 1st annual Christmas Market.  The market kicked-off at 1PM and by 3:30PM, virtually all items (wreaths, poinsettias, Div 2 Christmas ornaments, etc.) were sold out.  All proceeds will go to charities, as the Boys live the “Christian Charity” part of our motto.  President Jim Killian stated “I couldn’t be more proud of what the Boys and Dennis accomplished today.”

 

Thanks to all the Brothers that attended and made a purchase, it was very much appreciated!  What a wonderful way to kick-off the first day of Advent! The Junior Boys are just 1 of 3 Junior Divisions in New York State, something we are extremely proud of as we carry on our tradition and heritage!
