PASADENA—The new Pasadena Armenian Center on Foothill Boulevard will be celebrated on June 12 at a ribbon cutting ceremony marking the official opening of the community center. The ribbon cutting ceremony will bring together a diverse cross-section of the community, religious leaders, and public officials who believe in the mission of the Pasadena Armenian Center – which is to serve as a home to a new generation of Armenian Americans. The ribbon cutting ceremony is open to the public and will be held at 4pm at the center, which is situated at 2242 East Foothill Boulevard.
With a sports facility and a variety of modern conference rooms, the Pasadena Armenian Center is a welcome addition to serve the growing needs of the local Armenian American community. The center is home to a variety of organizations, including the Armenian Youth Federation and hundreds of Homenetmen scouts and athletes who use the facility on a daily basis.
“The future demands that we build a strong center today,” remarked the Hilda Saliba, chair of the Pasadena Armenian Center committee leading the effort for the ribbon cutting ceremony. “The new Pasadena Armenian Center has, very quickly, become a magnet for hundreds of young Armenian Americans in our community. With a multi-faceted center we will build an even stronger community. So that is why our ribbon cutting ceremony on June 12th will be such a special event,” Saliba added.
The theme of the ribbon cutting ceremony will focus on the role of individuals and families in providing the building blocks to create a better and strong Armenian center in Pasadena. By attending the ribbon cutting ceremony, individuals and families will send a decisive message that they believe in investing in their community’s future. Those present at the ribbon cutting ceremony on June 12th can be confident that the community center will deliver dividends in the years to come in the form of a new generation of proud and active Armenian Americans. The Pasadena Armenian Center has served to attract individuals who have not previously been involved in community affairs and those who have not been active in years.
