The Kytherian Association of Australia (KAA)’s new book celebrating 100 years of its rich history will be launched on Saturday, March 16 from 1 pm at the Prince Henry Centre in Little Bay, Sydney.

The book is titled EKATO: Kytherian Association of Australia 1922-2022: The First 50 Years (Vol I), and was written by historian Vasilios Vasilas.

It is a testament to the enduring spirit of the Kytherian community, and highlights the Association’s journey, achievements, milestones, and the collective efforts of generations past and present. 

President of the KAA, Barbara Zantiotis, thanked Mr Vasilas for putting the book together over five years, and said it was “both impressive and astonishing” that the Association is over 100 years old.

“To reach such an incredible milestone bears testament to the passion, commitment, and dedication of all the remarkable individuals who have been involved with the association during this time,” Ms Zantiotis added.

Andrew Malanos, the Centenary Book Team (Leader) and Chair of the KAA Centenary Committee, said the book wouldn’t have been possible without the help of many wonderful volunteers.

“It never ceases to amaze me just what treasures a handful of volunteers can deliver, with nothing but shear drive and determination pulsing through our Kytherian veins,” Mr Malanos said.

“Every page in this book demonstrates this raw power not once but twice. 

“The first time by the most extraordinary achievements of all those wonderful volunteers and committees throughout our first 50 years, and the second time by the most amazing Centenary Book Team, without which this book would not have been possible.”

The book launch for EKATO will take place on Saturday, March 16 from 1 pm at the Prince Henry Centre in Little Bay, Sydney. Light refreshments and drinks will be provided. To book your spot, visit https://www.trybooking.com/events/landing/1169810?
