To kick off the afternoon, welcoming remarks were delivered by the ACYOA Seniors Vice Chairman Alen Dokmeciyan, ACYOA Juniors member Nicole Mark, ACYOA Central Council member Arsen Yelegen, and Parish Council liaison Aram Ciamician. Following the remarks, guests enjoyed a variety of mezze dishes along with delicious entrées while watching some of Holy Martyrs’ most talented showcase their skills. Performances included the passionate singing of "Yerevan Erebuni" by Karina Vartanian, traditional dancing by Hye Bar, and a moving solo singing performance by Yeretzgin Karine Malkhasyan. Lastly, guests played a Holy Martyrs-themed trivia game focusing on the church’s rich 60-year history. Following a benediction by Fr. Abraham, desserts were served and a ceremonial cake was enjoyed.
