Greetings to all who have gathered to celebrate Armenian Independence

California is home to a fantastic mix of customs and cultures, and today, I thank our Armenian-American residents for the wonderful influence you have on our state. Your many contributions enrich our communities, strengthen our economy and touch the lives of your fellow Californians. It’s a distinct honor to join you in commemorating this special occasion.

As an immigrant, I know firsthand the joy that comes in celebrating your ancestral roots. Days like this not only remind us of time-honored traditions, but also of the great diversity that we enjoy here in our Golden State.

On behalf of all Californians, I wish you a memorable observance and every future success.

Arnold Schwarzenegger
