Follow Raffi's Lead: Dedicate a Bench


A bench at Yitzhak Rabin Park, at the corner of Westminster Avenue and Guelph Road, has been dedicated in the memory of the late Kris Demircigil by Raffi Abikian of Raffi’s Shell Station. Kris was Raffi’s father-in-law and business partner for 20 years until his passing on January 12, 2007.  Pictured seated are Raffi Abikian (left) and mechanic Zareh Haciartinian, who worked with Kris for 15 years. Standing behind the bench with me is  District Councillor Allan J. Levine. As the councillor  responsible for the sponsorship portfolio I can report that there have a number of new requests within the city by individuals wishing to dedicate a   benches. I encourage those interested in finding out  more to  call 514-485-6800 ext. 1802. Help improve  the public spaces in your community by sponsoring the restoration of a Côte Saint-Luc city bench or the purchase of a new one. Each new or restored bench will be affixed with a beautiful bronze plaque.  This is a perfect opportunity to honour a loved one or memorialize an important birthday or anniversary while beautifying your city. The prices are $500 for a restored bench and $2,000 for a new one.
