ANCA-Burbank Celebrates Christmas at the new Burbank Youth Center
Burbank, CA — The Armenian National Committee of America, Burbank
(ANCA-B) hosted its annual Armenian Christmas reception on January 7,
2013. In attendance were members of the City Council, several City
officials, candidates for Burbank elections and representatives of
several state and federal government offices, as well as members of
the organizations that call new Burbank Youth Center home.

The festive evening began with remarks by Zareh Khachatourian, who
welcomed the guests and described the exciting opportunities available
at the Burbank Youth Center. Mayor of Burbank, Dave Golonski,
congratulated ANCA-B and the entire Armenian community for the efforts
that culminated in the new Youth Center, and expressed his best wishes
for the future of the community. Guests were then invited to enjoy the
food and explore the Youth Center, which provides a basketball court,
offices, and meeting spaces.

Overall, the evening was celebratory, yet productive. `I would like to
thank our city officials for attending our annual event and showing
support to our Center and its activities, setting an example for our
youth to become exemplary citizens of their community,’ stated Ara
Boyadjian, chairman of the Christmas reception organizing
committee. `Events such as this provide an opportunity to interact and
discuss important issues with our elected official in a fun, casual
atmosphere. It is through the support of our local, state, and
federal officials that the ANCA-B is able to continue to serve the
community, and provide resources for our youth. We are pleased to
always receive such a great turnout,’ added Boyadjian.

The Armenian National Committee of America, Burbank advances the
social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s
Armenian American community and promotes increased Armenian American
civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
