It is with delight that we celebrate The Armenian Cultural Association’s 54th anniversary this year. The years seem to have flown by since the summer of 1968 when some twenty people from the then very small Armenian community in Vancouver, gathered together and established a seven member committee to meet the cultural needs of the community.
Their mandate was to promote the Armenian language, traditions, values, history and culture. The commitment and dedication of all ACA members over the years has been commendable. The community has grown considerably over the years, and The Armenian Cultural Association has expanded with it. Lectures, concerts, banquets, musical evenings, fundraisers, art exhibits, scholarships as well as a weekly radio program, are a few of the many events promoted and supported by ACA. None of these would have been possible without the enthusiastic support of the entire Armenian community in Vancouver, for which we are extremely grateful and extend our warmest thanks.
