MONTEBELLO—The Armenian Relief Society Nairy Chapter of Montebello is celebrating the 30th Anniversary of its Saturday School. The elegant dinner dance will be held on Sunday, June 3 at 5p.m. at the Bagramian Hall of the Holy Cross Cathedral and will feature the famous singer Ara Martirosyan and his band, Hye Superstar Lucy Hart, as well as the Vartan & Siranoush Gevorkian Dance Academy. The program will include a short graduation ceremony.
Thirty years ago, true to its calling, the ARS Nairy chapter took upon itself the sponsorship and management of the Khachatur Apovian Saturday School, a privately owned venture facing serious financial problems. By taking over the existing school, the Nairy Chapter was able to save an institution of learning in Montebello .Since 1982, chapter members, dedicated principals and staff of the ARS Nairy Saturday School have all worked hard to preserve our language, culture and heritage, and above all to instill in generations of youngster the proud spirit of Armenianism.
A committee comprised of school alumni, parents and chapter members has been formed and is working for the last few months to organize this event and to provide a memorable evening for the community. We invite the public, especially those who truly believe that educating our youth is the only sure way of survival, to join us on June 3rd at Bagramian Hall.
