    Narine Tukhikyan-Khachaturyan has 2 more events in town (Glendale). See below the sections from “Asbarez”‘s Armenian version’s March 20, 2018 news report about the same subject. Why is the same reporting missing in the English version?
    “Մարտ 28ին, երեկոյեան ժամը 7:30ին, Համազգայինի նախաձեռնութեամբ պիտի կայանայ ծանօթացման ձեռնարկ մը՝ «Գարամանուկեան» կեդրոնի «Գազանճեան» սրահին մէջ (211 W. Chestnut St., Ս. Աստուածածին եկեղեցւոյ կից)։

    Թանգարանին ծանօթացման ձեռնարկ մը տեղի պիտի ունենայ նաեւ Մարտ 29ին, երեկոյեան ժամը 6:30ին, Կլենտէյլի Իրանահայ միութեան կեդրոնին մէջ (117 S Louise St.)։”
