Hartford AOH Division 2 continues to be active in the autumn months as the holiday season approaches.
The Division continues to have monthly food drives to benefit the Food Pantry at Saint Augustine Church in Hartford. The October drive included a call for an extra bag of Halloween treats with usual donations and the November drive was for Thanksgiving side dishes. The Division will work with Saint Augustine to help others for the Christmas holiday.
The Division has been held monthly meetings that were both in-person practicing social distancing and in a virtual format. Starting in December, the meetings will be virtual-only as the COVID-19 virus spread more rapid in Connecticut. The October speaker was Rory McGloin of the Hartford GAA and in November, Connecticut television journalist Dennis House led a non-partisan discussion on the 2020 election, both from a national and state perspective.
The Division will also holds is annual March Calendar Raffle, which awards a daily prize each day in March. The raffle benefit the Hartford St. Patrick’s Day Parade the charities of Hartford AOH. Calendars are $10 each.
