This is an opportunity for the Cleveland Hibernians to showcase our fair city and all it has to offer to others around the State of Ohio, and beyond. We are compiling a Program Book and turn to you our friends and ask for your support of this cherished tradition through the purchase of an advertisement. The deadline for program ads is June 10, 2021.
This is an opening for individuals, organizations, and corporations to introduce or re-introduce themselves to the Hibernians. Hibernian Brothers and Sisters, our Program Book is your way of paying tribute to the State of Ohio Hibernians past, present, and future; send greetings and acknowledgments to our officers; remember a longtime friend; or just say hello to attendees.
