Greece’s Secretary General for Greeks Abroad and Public Diplomacy, John Chrysoulakis, has sent a letter of congratulations to the Kytherian Association of Australia (KAA) to mark their centenary anniversary.

In a letter addressed to the President of the KAA, Emmanuel Alfieris, Mr Chrysoulakis congratulated the Association for “always serving the national goal of preserving the ties of Greeks abroad with our ancestors and ancestry.”

“It is this characteristic which has ensured the full support and cooperation for 100 years of thousands of members who volunteer their time and money [to the KAA],” Mr Chrysoulakis wrote, while stressing the diaspora’s continued and strong love for Kythera.

The Secretary General then went on to praise the Kytherian Australians for their “contribution to the economic, social, cultural, business and political life of Australia,” and wrote briefly about the KAA limited edition centenary medallions.

“It is no coincidence that the Collectible Medals issued for the centenary of the KAA were minted by the Royal Australian Mint,” the letter states.

Mr Chrysoulakis concluded his letter by wishing the KAA “all the best for the future.”
