(Greenville, NY) – Enjoying the beautiful Catskill fall foliage, playing bingo with friends, involved in an intense tavloo tournament, creating unique craft projects, and dancing to traditional Armenian music will all be a part of the Catksill Getaway program offered at the Ararat Center on October 6-11.

Remininscent of the “Catskilleen Jampan” days of old, this unique weekend will guarantee fun-filled memories and the beginning of new traditions in the years to come.

Zovinar Ashjian of Hartsdale, NY, will serve as the Activities Coordinator for the program.  Ms. Ashjian brings creative, hands-on experience with her in overseeing this program that is sponsored by the Ararat Center Board of Directors.  She has a full schedule of recreational activities planned for all ages throughout the weekend.  Or, choose to simply sit in a lawn chair and read a novel while taking in the fresh, mountain air.

Participants have an option of either a three or five day package plan with their choice of single or double occupancy rooms.  Family rooms are also available and children 5 and under are free with special rates available for children ages 6-12.  Delicious food, including Armenian favorites, is included with all package plans that range from $300 - $625.
