Burnet, Texas–The brothers of the newly formed Austin Hibernians gathered at Eagles Nest Retreat for a 2-day planning session. This afforded us the opportunity to get to know each socially and the time to share ideas. Discussion revolved around logistics on recruitment events both fundraising and charitable, and creating a presence in the Austin community. Good food, good times and good friends.
Austin, Texas- Brothers from the newly formed Division 1 provided help at the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration organized by the Celtic Cultural Center. Membership information and a Irish gift basket raffle were the center of attention.
