Mr. Tellalian Giving a Presentation on How Boston Armenian Heritage Park in Boston was Built

On Sunday afternoon, February 25, 2018, over 125 people gathered at St. Peter Armenian Apostolic Church, in Watervliet, N.Y., to hear keynote speaker Mr. Donald Tellalian give a presentation on “How We Built The Park.”

Mr. Tellalian’s presentation was in reference to the Boston Armenian Heritage Park in Boston, and he was the principle architect of that historical project.

The program was sponsored by the Knights and Daughters of Vartan, Watervliet, NY, Davros Lodge and Shakeh Otyag respectively, and was attended by a number of dignitaries, including NEI Grand District Representatives, N.S. Thomas Dabakian and Yn. Patricia Buttero, along with NY Congressman Paul D. Tonko, Rensselaer County Executive, Hon. Steven F. McLaughlin, and representatives from the local Armenian churches and outlying ethnic communities.

In addition to Mr. Tellalian’s informative and inspiring PowerPoint presentation, the program featured musical selections by acting Sbarabed Rafi Topalian, and songs and recitations by the Armenian School Students, directed by Asbed Dr. Ara Kayayan. The special Lenten meal was prepared by Asbed Bill Nevins, assisted by Knights and Daughters of Davros Lodge and Shakeh Otyag.

To say the event was a rousing success is an understatement, and all members of Davros Lodge and Shakeh Otyag should be proud of their accomplishment.

In closing, a special recognition and thanks should go to our acting Sbarabed Mr. Rafi Topalian, who worked tirelessly to organize this event.
