AYF to Hold Second Annual Little Armenia Clean Up

Los Angeles – The Armenian Youth Federation Western United States Garo
Madenlian Public Affairs Office announced Thursday that it has began the
planning and organization of the Second Annual Little Armenia Clean Up
scheduled to take place on September 25.

The clean up, which is cosponsored by Council Member Eric Garcetti’s Office,
will begin at 8:30 am with an opening ceremony, including remarks by Council
Member Garcetti. Volunteers for the clean up will work to remove litter and
unwanted weeds from the streets and sidewalks.

The clean up, a project of the AYF Little Armenia Beautification Program,
will include the renewal of the `Welcome to Little Armenia’ banners placed
on various major intersections of Little Armenia.

`It is an honor to the Armenian American community to have an area of the
City Los Angeles named after our homeland,’ said Vicken Sosikian, Chairman
of the AYF Western Region. `Since October of 2000 we have enjoyed this
honor, and feel that we not only need to give back to Little Armenia and its
residents, but also to the city of Los Angeles.’

The AYF counts on the support of the Armenian community to make this
community outreach event a success. Those who are interested in volunteering
for the clean up or contributing to the effort in anyway should email the
AYF at [email protected].

The Armenian Youth Federation strives to serve Armenian American communities
west of the Mississippi through education, athletics, political activism,
cultural activities, and social settings. To learn more about the AYF please
