The Ancient Order of Hibernians, Rev. Harold Flynn Division 2 of Fulton held its annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Sunday at the Fulton Polish Home.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America formed in 1836 to promote national unity and Christian charity in Ireland.

The Fulton Division 2 Ancient Order of Hibernians was founded in 1971 and early charter members include Bud Shinnick and Charlie and Bob Callen.

The goal of the Hibernians is to promote the ideals of the people who gave their lives for the cause of Irish freedom.

Fulton Hibernians began their annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Polish Home several years ago as a way to give the people in the City of Fulton somewhere to celebrate.
