The ASO executive decided to have a “getting acquainted” party, by holding an awesome picnic at Woodward Park, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The turnout was great and so was the food. What is great about an Armenian picnic is that there are no sandwiches. Instead, we had salad, rice pilaf, and plenty of barbequed meat. No one could leave the table hungry. The meat was barbequed perfectly,
which everyone enjoyed.
More than 30 members of the Armenian Students Organization gathered on Sunday, October 3 at Woodward Park in Fresno. After a enjoying a delicious lunch, members played volleyball, tavloo, football,and chess. Members commented on how much fun they had at the picnic.
The weather was just right for a picnic. Besides having plenty of food, there were also plenty of games to choose from. Volleyball was very popular as well as chess and cards. My personal favorite was badminton. Everybody had a chance to relax, lounge around, and talk about what was going on in their lives.
It was fun seeing Armenians spending time bonding with each other. I feel that it is very important we keep our Armenian heritage alive, and by participating in such gatherings, that is exactly what we do. This is what the ASO does, it brings Armenians together, to have fun and relax.
For those of you who were unable to attend, the ASO has plenty more fun to come. ASO is planning an October Halloween Party as well as a Thanksgiving bowling night, and canned food drive, so check you email for dates and times.
