Today I want to show you an article I wrote from my past when I wrote for my Armenian community and church.
More to come this week…..
The Armenian Church Youth Organization of Canada has been organizing ski trips for their Senior and Junior members for years. This is considered one of the most exciting events of the group and every year more people join in to spend couple of days enjoying the great outdoor activities in one of the best places that Ontario has to offer.
In February & March 2010, the Seniors’ group led by Garen Hagopian, and the Juniors’ group led by Nareg Zargarian, had weekends away, starting by gathering at Holy Trinity Armenian Church.
Following a prayer in the evening and receiving Rev. Archpriest Zareh Zargarian’s good wishes and advice, the groups settled in their buses and were on their way to Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood.
Youth representatives from Montreal also attended the Senior ACYOC group’s trip in February. We spent the days skiing, snowboarding, eating beavertails, going to the village, shopping, swimming in an outdoor warm pool, listening to music, playing cards, cooking and having meals together. But most of all we enjoyed each others company, strengthened our friendships and made new friends.
The main focus of ACYOC is to connect Armenian youth together, and organize events that we will talk about for years to come and creating everlasting memories. We hope to see more youth joining us in ski trips and other events in the years to come.
