Newly elected ACOM President Francis Bulbulian introduced the 2016-2017 ACOM Committee members, and specifically asked the three new ones (all first-timers) to come up to the front. He also recognized outgoing members, as the two-year terms completed at the end of 2015. A silent auction was held with many interesting items, the majority of which were donated by Dr. John and Mignette Najarian, including antique articles such as brass Persian camel bells, a brazier, coffee jugs, single Arabian bells, an Armenian plate and many more. Also generously donated were an original painting done by Laurel Gregorian, and other items gifted by Andrea Johnson, Margaret Favre and Nairy Digris. All proceeds from the auction will help ACOM in its subsidy of the Gaghant party.
Very special thanks to our outgoing President Leroy Erickson for two great years of leadership! Also, to all the board members who devoted much time and energy in finding, organizing and setting up this event. The only complaint heard the whole evening was from Lynne Gildensoph, who was not able to dance due to a broken toe.... Here's hoping Lynne heals fast so she may join in next time! We look forward to seeing you again next year. As always, feel free to invite family and friends along.
