Lemnos Centenary of Anzac - Commemorative Event 2 - Viewing of Anzac Girls and Canadian Reception at Portianou Cultural Centre

Following the unveiling of the new Nurses Memorial at Portianos Military Cemetery, the Canadian Ambassador hosted a reception at Portianou Cultural Centre on the evening of 18th April.
The reception included presentations, a viewing of one of the key episodes of the ABC's Anzac Girls (with Greek subtitles) and local food and wine - including Venizelos Cakes.
The reception was well attended, including by members of our Committee.

The reception was preceded by the unveiling of a new memorial to the tragic killing of a British Embassy official in Athens a few years ago - who had visited Portianos Military Cemetery prior to returning to Athens. The memorial was erected by the Lemnos authorities and attended by diplomatic and military representations, including from the United kingdom.
