NORTH HOLLYWOOD—The Armenian Apostolic Church of North Hollywood will be hosting its annual picnic on Sunday, August 7, 2016 at 11am at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, California. The event, which has become a local tradition, will feature games and activities for children, Armenian BBQ, and entertainment for all ages, including performances by over a dozen Armenian singers.
As in previous years, over a thousand Armenian-Americans from the East San Fernando Valley neighborhoods of North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Sherman Oaks, Studio City and surrounding areas are expected to attend. The cost of admission, which includes a BBQ lunch, is $15 for adults and $8 for children between the ages of 5 and 12. Children under the age of 5 will be admitted for free. Parking will also be available free of charge.
“The annual picnic is a great way for our church parishioners and local community to come together in a happy setting to enjoy an afternoon filled with fellowship and fun with family and friends,” stated Harut Tarpinian, the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Armenian Apostolic Church of North Hollywood.
The Armenian Apostolic Church of North Hollywood, under the pastorship of the Reverend Archpriest Fr. Nareg Pehlivanian, is one of over a dozen parishes operating under the jurisdiction of the Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America. Though it is a relatively new parish, it has succeeded in very little time to gather the Armenian faithful in North Hollywood in worship and service and is working diligently toward buying a church of its own to call home.
The annual picnic hosted by the Armenian Apostolic Church of North Hollywood will be held in Section #1 of Woodley Park on Woodley Avenue, located between Burbank and Victory Boulevards. For more information, readers are asked to call either (818) 481-4317 or (818) 209-9236.
