On April 20, 2018 the Greater Boston Armenian community commemorated the 103rd anniversary of the 1915-1923 Genocide in the Chamber of the Massachusetts State House of Representatives.  This local event began in the 1980’s and has been supported by the Knights of Vartan Ararat Lodge #1 every year since its inception by taking an active role on the committee and especially providing financial and logistics support for free round-trip buses for the local community including school children.

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
