70th Anniversary Celebration:  The Holy Trinity Chapter is especially honored to be hosting this year’s gathering, as 2016 marks the 70th anniversary of the ACYOA, founded in 1946 by Archbishop Tiran Nersoyan.  In an effort to give all ACYOA alumni and friends an opportunity to join in the celebration, the weekend will culminate with a 70th anniversary ACYOA Alumni Gala at the Boston Park Plaza on Sunday evening, May 29, 2016.  All clergy are our guests for the Dance portion of the evening.  However, if clergy wish to join us for the Alumni Cocktail Dinner Reception, we ask for a $50 donation to offset expenses, which can be made using the above-referenced Clergy Registration Form.  If you wish to purchase additional tickets for the event, please visit ACYOA Alumni Gala. 

Clergy Approval Required: Please note that all participants must obtain clergy approval to attend the Weekend.  [In the absence of a Pastor, the Parish Council Chairman can provide the approval.]  This policy is in effect to help ensure that those who sign up for the Weekend are members of the Armenian Church.

At the conclusion of Thursday night’s portion of the meeting, there will be a service at Boston’s Armenian Heritage Park and after the delegates will enjoy a reception across the way at The Bostonian Millenial Hotel’s new Thomas Menino room.
