Tea Time at the Sherman Oaks Woman’s Club
The Club is celebrating its 85th birthday at their Silver Tea on May 15. This event is held at its previous club house on Kester Avenue. The tea is known for the wonderful food provided by the club members. It’s time to show off their skills in homemade scones, clotted butter, crumpets, tarts, croissants, and tea sandwiches, etc. Besides a delicious tea the entertainment is just as charming. Their own honorary member Don Snyder provides a musical treat that is pure charm by singing and playing the piano with unforgettable music that we all love. It is reciprocity time where all presidents from the other 14 Woman’s Clubs are invited to attend. Hopefully future members will be attending as guests.

The Armenian Relief Society (ARS) of Western USA’s Regional Executive Chairperson Lena Bozoyan was among five women honored with the Heart & Excellence Award at the YWCA of Glendale’s 16th Legacy Luncheon on April 25, 2013 at the Oakmont Country Club. During the program emceed by Cater Lee, two high school seniors also received the Jane O’Connor Volunteer Service Award.
ARS Central Executive Board Chair Vicky Marashlian and Member Annie Kechichian attended the luncheon with ARS Regional board, staff, and members.
In accepting her award, Bozoyan’s message was about being united against violence, terror, and genocides. Referring to the ARS, ANCA-Glendale, Commission on the Status of Women, and Neighborhood Legal Services of Glendale, she added, “One of the reasons that we created the Safe Family Task Force was because the YWCA Glendale lost one of the domestic violence shelters and we had to come up with an alternative for the victims.”
She observed that service organizations in the task force are helping the YWCA and community organizations with relief efforts.
Alongside Bozoyan, Heart & Excellence honorees also included Toni Beck Espinoza, Jory Potts, Mary Margaret Smith, and Joylene Wagner.
