Armenian Memorial Church Hosts Annual Fair in May


WATERTOWN — The Armenian Memorial Church of Watertown will hold its annual fair on Friday, May 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., rain or shine.

Visitors will have two days to enjoy the traditional Armenian meals, including vegetarian meals. The public may eat at tables under the tent or may purchase take-out orders.

The women of the church are known for their fine cooking and have been preparing Armenian delicacies which will be available at the baked goods table. These specialties include cheoreg, mante, paklava, kadayif, beureg and many other delights.

The fair will also feature a sale of household items at bargain prices and a variety of vendor tables.

Christine Mekjian of Watertown is chairing this year’s committee which includes Adrine Beurklian Anahid Salakian and Roberta Vanderkeyl of Watertown; Gregg Ohanian of Woburn;  Angel Parseghian, and Vicky Tomasian,  of Belmont; Jonathan Hartunian of Lexington; Scott Yerganian of Medfield; Susan Parseghian of Arlington and Marilyn Coughlan of Needham.

While the fair is the largest fundraiser of the year, the church sets aside 10 percent of the proceeds to a worthy charity. This year’s funds will be donated to Project Save in Watertown, which has been preserving Armenian photographs.
