For Narek Kassabian, this week will be about coming together while at
the same time celebrating cultural uniqueness.
Kassabian and her Armenian Club students at Hoover High School
will read poetry and perform traditional Armenian dances for the
student body Monday during an assembly she hopes brings students
together. The assembly is not open to the public.
Kassabian's students are among many local and area residents this
week celebrating Armenian culture and commemorating the 88th
anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
"The real message here is that we are all the same," Kassabian
said. "We can't let culture and language get in the way of coming
together as people."
The following is a list of events and activities that celebrate
Armenian culture and will commemorate the Armenian Genocide. All
except the assembly are free and open to the public.
