This year as in the past St. John Parish Council hosted an appreciation luncheon following church services, for all the volunteers who worked diligently to make the Food Festival a successful event. The event was well attended. Fr. Mesrop Ash welcomed everyone and thanked not only the volunteers that helped during the festival but to all the parishioners for all their support and love throughout the year. Dr. John Boghossian Parish Council and Food Festival Chairman also expressed his gratitude to all the volunteers and ACYO members for their hard work and informed that having the food festival for one day was a new concept but it was succesful both in terms of fundraising and church morale. He also thanked the Cherezian brothers Steven and Charles for coordinating the delicious luncheon.
Everyone had a great time enjoying the food and each other's company.
Following the luncheon a Food Festival wrap-up meeting was held, during which the results of the festival were reported to the committee members. Both positive and constructive feedback was given, and everyone express excited for next year's program.
