The LBA History

Founding events:
Our organization was founded on October 23rd, 1887 in Chicago as the “Luxembourg Bruderbund”. There were 25 men present at that first meeting. The first social gatherings were a dance in January of 1888 followed by a picnic in the spring. On December 8, 1888, the Luxembourger Bruderbund was incorporated by the State of Illinois as a benevolent, charitable and sociable organization, which offered death benefits to its members. At many of these early meetings Luxembourgish was the official language.
