AGBU’s New England District and YP Boston Host Thanksgiving Dinner for University Students

On Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2011, the AGBU New England District and the Young Professionals (YP) of Boston hosted what they hope to be an annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Boston-area Armenian college and university students and their friends. “We’re committed to reaching out to local college students,” announced New England Chair Ara J. Balikian. “It was a pleasure for us to provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for those who were unable to go home for the holiday. We consider them a part of our family.”

The dinner was free to students and was held at the AGBU Center located in Watertown, MA.  As a bonus, several students were picked-up and returned to their respective campuses.  Everyone who attended enjoyed the food, conversation, and hospitality. With plans to re-energize the local community, AGBU’s New England Chapter has recently regrouped with a new young and vibrant committee.
