On August 28th, the Seroonian Armenian Community Center was transformed into the finest cafe` in Zahle, Lebanon. Over 100 guests of all ages came to enjoy the night. The outside of building was decorated in a lovely array of flowers, a waterfall and even a centerpiece statue of “Athra Mariam Astvazazin,” bringing an authentic feel of being in Lebanon. The mezze and dinner featured Lebanese specialties like “kebe neea,” also known as chekefta, fatoush, hummus, kebob and many other authentic dishes. Guests complimented their meals by drinking Beqaa wadi Arak while taking in the delicious smells of Zahle and listening to the recordings of Ferouz, a famous Lebanese singer.
The Seroonian Community Center Committee would like to thank our sponsors, Dr. and Mrs. Michel and Sonia Nalbantian, as well as all those who assisted in making this event such a successful one.
