Scouts of Armavir and Ejmiadzin chapters of the National Scout Movement of Armenia “HASK” decided to mark Armenian Scouts’ Day with a special program. At first, they bowed to the memory of Vardan Bakhshyan,a well-known Armenian freedom fighter who is also one of the re-founders of scouting in Armenia. Then the welcoming message from the Scoutmasters’ Council was read. It was followed by socially useful work, carried out in Armavir botanical garden and zoological park. Its territory was cleaned by the scouts.
Gevorg Gasparyan, Chief Scout of “HASK” and Vigen Hovhannisyan, Scout master of Yerevan Branch were present at this symbolic event. They also held an interesting and sincere lecture on scouting and after which the ranks and classes were granted.
As Vigen Hovhannisyan mentioned in his final speech, the scouts stayed true to the Scout Oath and realized at least 5 clauses of the Oath. This fact once again comes to prove that the program was truly useful and necessary.
