First, the ceremony of raising the flag of the Armenian General Athletic Union took place accompanied by the Homenetmen Orchestra. This was followed by the speeches of Dr. Hayk Demoyan and Garnik Mkrtichyan.

The attendants also took part in the tree planting ceremony in the Memory Alley of Tsitsernakaberd, and the soil brought from Antelias, Constantinople, Paris and Mount Ararat was mixed with the soil of the Alley.

The celebration of the 100th anniversary of Homenetmen was summed up at the Armenian Genocide Museum, where the temporary exhibition titled “Armenian Sport and the Athletics in the Ottoman Empire” was reopened. Acting Director of the AGMI Narine Margaryan made an opening speech:

“The role of Homenetmen in preserving the Armenian identity is great. Homenetmen has contributed to the physical well-being of our new generation and the acquisition of national and moral values. Homenetmen is also a bridge for the strengthening and development Armenia-Diaspora ties. The AGMI gives special attention to the study and coverage of the pre-Armenian Genocide life. Armenian Athletics is one of the most important aspects of that life, as the Armenians have been the founders of the sport’s life in the Ottoman Empire”.

Then the audience was introduced to the temporary exhibition, Hayk Demoyan presented the history of exhibits and posters in detail.
