Azad-Hye, Dubai, 21 January 2006: It seems that 2006 will be an active
year for the UAE Armenians. The Community which has some 3000 members
concentrated in three main cities (Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Dubai),
is planning to celebrate the 25th anniversary of organized entity in
the UAE.

A Syrian Armenian historian Dr. Shogher Ashekian has been invited to
prepare a memorial book dedicated to this event. Community members
are encouraged to provide Ashekian with all kind of information that
will help to produce a great publication. There are lots of factual
stories, photos, letters and various archival material available with
individuals, that can really enrich the work.

The above material is requested to be sent to the Sharjah Armenian
Church's e-mail address (armcom@emirates.net.ae), with the promise
that, after scanning, all items will be returned to their owners.

The Community Address Book (or Directory) is another project that
needs attention. This project was originally scheduled to be published
in 2004, but it was delayed until this year and now it may need some
extra updating before eventual printing.

In neighboring Abu Dhabi the celebrations dedicated to the organized

community life will commence with the marking of the 25th anniversary
of the weekly school, scheduled to take place next March, supported
also by a comprehensive memorial book full of interesting articles
and photos.

Tamar Der Ohannessian, the principal of the school is asking all
previous students (since 1981) to provide photos and factual stories
related to the school and the role it played in their lives. Material
could be sent at her direct e-mail address: taledero@emirates.net.ae
