Group Photo at Voski Ashoun 2017

ACOM's annual Voski Ashoun Celebration was held this year at the Pine Tree Apple Orchard in White Bear Lake.

The day was a perfect autumn day for an excursion and picnic at an apple orchard. About 30 people attended and shared food, stories, a trivia game and wandering around the orchard and visiting the gift and bake shop. Peter Hajinian formulated an Armenian trivia quiz that most of the attendees perticipated in. There seemed to be no clear winner, even after a number of run-off questions all correctly answered by the 5 finalists. Peter finally announced that the first prize would go to "Poly" for a question that Poly asked of the trivia master that he couldn't answer. Everyone in attendence enjoyed the outing.

Festival of Nations Flag Ceremony

FESTIVAL of NATIONS 

ST. PAUL, MN 2017

Armenians were again represented at the International Institute of Minnesota's Festival of Nation celebration. This Festival has been ongoing since 1932 and Minnesota Armenians have participated in the Festival since its start.

During the Festival every year, there is a Flag ceremony held each day. This ceremony celebrates the varied ethnicities of Minnesota (particularly the Twin Cities) and the current bond that brings them all together - The United States Flag.

This year Bradley Erickson and Reena Ghanoum participated, representing Armenia. The ceremony is quite moving and shows us that we are a united people under this flag.
