“If your plan for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for 10 years, plant trees. If your plan is for 100 years, educate children.” Confucius.

The saying is what exemplifies the work of the Knights of Vartan since its inception103 years ago. The very first scholarships were for the American Armenian communities in the Middle East (Vahan Tekeyan school in Beirut, Haygazian National School in Halep and others) as well as in the USA to encourage Armenian youth to return to school after the memories of the horrible genocide of our people.

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
