The National Day of Greece was celebrated with a reception at the Consular residence for about 250 people, including local authorities, members of the Consular Corps, and many Greek-Americans. The highlight of the evening was the speech by Governor Michael Dukakis, who referred to the Greek efforts to overcome the economic crisis. The speech of the Consul General Elisabeth Fotiadou referred to the reforms undertaken by the Greek Government, the opportunities for investments and the efforts of EU to adopt a mechanism to tackle with crisis quickly and efficiently.
The celebration was also an opportunity to promote tourism and traditional Greek products, through a presentation of high class Greek resorts, wine and olive oil tasting.
A selection of 6 musical themes from traditional songs to rebetiko to contemporary Greek composers was presented by Yiannis Goudelis’ musical Group.
