It is my privilege to have been appointed the Chair of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Official Anniversary Celebration by National President Carol Sheyer. This is a once in a lifetime special event and such an exciting time for the LAOH…125 years of Greatness! The LAOH will continue to make history as its members, family and friends come together during this memorable celebration October 10 through 12, 2019.
The event will take place at the historic Dearborn Inn located in Dearborn, Michigan. As a cost saving measure for all, President Sheyer has combined the Interim Board meeting, her Testimonial, and the 125th Anniversary of the LAOH. All will take place during this weekend that promises to be nothing short of amazing.
The LAOH will kick off the celebration in a spiritual manner on October 10. We will go by bus to the Solanus Casey Center. At the Center we will have a private tour, LAOH National Chaplain Monsignor Gray will celebrate Mass and lunch will be following mass. While at the Center, there will be time to pray and petitions may be offered at the Blessed Solanus Casey’s final resting place. Later that evening there will be a special presentation that you will not want to miss.
All those in attendance will have the opportunity to visit the Henry Ford Museum or Greenfield Village on October 11. Both venues are approximately one mile away from the hotel. That evening, the State of Ohio cordially invites you to attend a Hooley in honor of National President, President Carol Sheyer. Plan on an evening filled with music, dance and a good time with sister and brother Hibernians, as we celebrate with our National President.
Saturday morning the Interim Board will take place. At 3:30, a photographer for a book that we will be producing commemorating 125 years of the LAOH. Each State will be asked to contribute their history to this publication. Photographs will be taken of all Boards and State representatives in attendance this weekend. This is our history in the making and we want to record it. The book will come out after the 125th Celebration so that we can include these photos.
Monsignor Gray will celebrate our evening Mass followed by cocktails and the gala dinner. After the dinner, there will plenty of time to enjoy the evening socializing, dancing and having a good time.
Don’t miss out on this memorable time as we make history with this momentous milestone of 125 years of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernian’s Inc.
