St. Mary, Yettem "Lock-In"
To start off the fiscal ACYO-WD year, Central Council held their first meeting/retreat up at Hye Camp in Dunlap, California. After a long, effective meeting we joined St. Mary Yettem ACYO for their first winter lock-in, co-hosted with St. Gregory Fowler and St. Paul Fresno. With about 30-40 members in attendance from various ACYO groups, we gathered and enjoyed fellowship the entire evening. The youth spent time watching Der Vartan's educational Etchmiadzin video, enjoying great food made by the parents, playing different games, such as Uno and Mafia, and watching movies throughout the night. The following morning, we participated in St. Mary Yettem's Badarak and fellowship following. With Der Vartan's blessing, St. Mary Yettem has decided to make this an annual Winter Lock-in event, open to all ACYO chapters to participate in. Let's all take the effort to participate next year and make it a successful event!
