The celebrated restaurant owner and chef José Andrés describes Las Vegas as a celebration. From July 10th through the 13th some 230 Knights and Daughters of Vartan did just that, celebrated at their Grand Convocation. For the Knights of Vartan, it was their 101st Avak Tahlij while the Daughters of Vartan marked their 79th Kerakouyn Zhoghov. This year’s Grand Convocation was hosted by Fresno, California’s Yeprad Lodge No. 9 and Alidz Chapter No. 8 with help from other California lodges as well as those from Chicago and Washington D.C.

Armenian Heritage Monument Dedication

Dear Avak Sbarabed,

Armenian Heritage Monument Dedication

The Knights and Daughters of Vartan are proud to announce the official dedication of the Armenian Heritage Monument, which will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2013, at the Troy Riverfront Park, starting at 1:00 p.m.

The Armenian Heritage Monument was conceived by the Knights and Daughters of Vartan in 2005. Dr. John Essepian originally spearheaded the project along with a committee of Knights and Daughters. Former Mayor Harry Tutunjian and current Mayor Lou Rosamilia supported the project for the City of Troy.

The dedication ceremony will include a short service by the local Armenian Church clergy, political dignitaries and national leaders of the Knights and Daughters. The public is cordially invited to attend. After the ceremony, a reception will be held across the street at the Franklin Square Best Western Inn.

Donations towards the upkeep and maintenance of the monument are now being accepted. Please contact Phil Natcharian at 785-8767. All donor names will appear in a souvenir Monument Dedication booklet to be distributed at the reception.

We hope that you can keep this date open. Davros Talij will send you a formal invitation. We ask that the Genocide Memorial project remain confidential at this time.

Fraternally,

Sb John
