2017 Chess Instruction Saturdays

Because learning never stops at the classroom, St. Thomas Armenian Church is proud to continue a tradition of almost 20 years of chess instruction to our Armenian children! We provide a wonderful opportunity to students, aged eight and up, to learn a national sport of Armenia. We are happy to announce the return of Chess Instructor Ohannes Baltaian to St. Thomas, and invite new and returning students to the free introductory session on Saturday, September 23. All Armenian children from the Tri-state area can participate in the Chess Club at St. Thomas. Beginner and Intermediate Chess classes are taught weekly, on Saturdays, at 1:30pm. All interested parents should complete the attached registration form to Ani Capan.
