AGBU Swiss honors two longtime leaders of the Topalian Foundation

Acknowledging their longstanding dedication and outstanding services to the Armenian community, AGBU Swiss honored the leadership of the H.D. Topalian Foundation with a special tribute held on April 29, 2011 in Geneva, Switzerland.

 

The Topalian Foundation, which is an AGBU-affiliated organization, was established in 1993 in Switzerland to fulfill the national aspirations of the late Hagop D. Topalian, a major benefactor of the Union.

 

For close to two decades, the president of the foundation, Edmond Pilossian, and its most active vice-chairwoman, Annie Mesrobian, continued to lead the activities of the foundation in carrying out its noble mission in support of a number of humanitarian and cultural initiatives.

 

During the recognition, AGBU President Berge Setrakian emphasized the role of AGBU Swiss, which was established in 1924 by the late Boghos Nubar and is presently led by Vahe Gabrache of Geneva.

 

Setrakian further praised all those who served on the board of the Topalian Foundation for their staunch dedication, and he bestowed the status of AGBU Honor Member on the two honorees. They, in turn, thanked AGBU and humbly accepted this recognition. Following the bestowal of the certificates, the two honorees were presented with crystal plaques as tokens of appreciation.

 

The tributary evening was attended by several AGBU Swiss Board members, including Vahe Gabrache, Aris Atamian, and Yervant Zorian, as well as AGBU Europe District chairman, Alexis Govciyan, and AGBU Europe board members. The event was held in conjunction with the 25th International Fair for Books and Press in Geneva, where, on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the first printed book in Armenian, “Armenia – Hayastan” was this year’s honorary pavilion. Not surprisingly, the event was organized mainly by the H.D. Topalian Foundation and co-sponsored by AGBU Swiss.
