Families and Friends at Home at Heritage Park


HeritageBOSTON — On Sunday, September 20, the second annual Afternoon at the Park for Families & Friends is being held on from 2 to 4 p.m. Festivities include dancing and enjoying the All-Star Armenian Ensemble featuring Greg Krikorian, oud/vocals George Righellis, guitar/vocals and Dr. Harry Papazian, dumbeg; dance instruction with Apo Ashjian, director and founder, Sayat Nova Dance Company of Boston; “The Find Someone” Game for kids who may team up with an adult to play for a chance to win Boston Duck Tour; and Boston’s iconic Boston ice cream treat, Hoodsies. The event, an initiative of the Friends of Armenian Heritage Park, is co-chaired by Gladys Partamian and Katrina Menzigian Glorikian.

During the coming months, several events are taking place at Armenian Heritage Park on Boston’s Greenway. Continuing are the monthly Labyrinth Walks in collaboration with the Labyrinth Society of New England and the Greenway Conservancy held on the first Wednesday of the month, May to October, at 12:30pm and the Public Art tours that include the Park’s Abstract Sculpture and Labyrinth.

The Park and its public programs are the result of the commitment and generosity of so many. Now nearing the end of its final phase, The Campaign for Armenian Heritage Park is raising the necessary funds to build the endowment so that the Park’s is impeccably cared and maintained year round in perpetuity. To date, close to 75 percent of the goal has been raised. Consider making a gift today to be part of reaching this goal.

A few naming opportunities at the Park remain for gifts of $50,000 and above.
