A donation was made by the society to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association, a very worthy cause championed by Cloone man Andy McGovern, the world’s longest survivor of this disease. You can see more details on Andy’s story here.

If you are interested in becoming more active in the Leitrim Society, we will be taking nominations for all board positions at the April meeting. We’d love to get some fresh faces on the board! The general election will take place at the May meeting, with the swearing in of all newly elected board members in June.

Members need to renew their membership for 2019 for the Society. Dues remain the same – $20 per family and $10 per individual member.

The next meeting will be held at the Adams Corner Cafe and Butcher Shop, 782 Adams Street, Dorchester, MA. on Tuesday, March 5th, 2019 at 7:30pm.
