[FAR Scholarships]: Apricot Feast Day standard

While Americans were celebrating Independence on the Fourth of July, FAR scholarship students spent the day celebrating a uniquely Armenian treasure: apricots! The day began in anticipation of good weather. The group was full of energy when they arrived in the picturesque village of Yervandashat, which is a true historical landmark. The clouds were refusing to give way to the sun, so the students began sorting some collected fruit, in hopes that the weather would improve and allow further work to take place. The President of the Yervandashat Agricultural Association Consumers Cooperative, Arkadi Khachikyan had planned the day of joint efforts for this year’s harvest.
