Dear GALAS friends and supporters, thank you for your involvement and continued support. Please keep in touch and visit our page often for the latest news on our activities and outreach events.
Brunch and Backgammon
GALAS hosted a very successful and entertaining “Brunch and Backgammon” event on Sunday, February 9th at Pacific Community Center during which new and long-time members had an opportunity to meet, talk about upcoming events, and a enjoy a friendly backgammon competition. Among the attendees were representatives from Congressman Adam Schiff’s office, who wanted to connect with our organization in order to become more familiar with issues facing the LGBTQ Armenian community. This continues the progress that GALAS has made this year in raising the organization’s profile in the Armenian American community.
After everyone enjoyed some Armenian coffee, pastries and food, we discussed what activities that members would like to participate in this year, ways to further raise the organization’s profile, and opportunities to volunteer. Ideas for GALAS’ Pride booth were discussed, and anyone interested in helping plan the design and content of the booth should please contact us as soon as possible. GALAS will also be planning a hike in the spring (details to follow). Finally, the event concluded with a lively backgammon tournament, and we congratulate Andro on winning a new backgammon set as the Backgammon Champion!
