The Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee congratulates the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV) on the opening of their new centre.
This re-development is a visionary one. We are sure that this will become the cultural and community hub for all Greek-Australians and Phil-hellenes who live or come to Melbourne.
We have proposed to the GOCMV that some of the amazing Anzac images and stories connecting Greece and Australia will be displayed and become available within this wonderful new building. Like the stories of the Hellenic Anzacs Peter Rados and  James Zampelis, and some of the images from 1915 and 1941 - 
Their display will tell a thousands stories about the Hellenic link to Australia through Anzac.
Many members and supporters of our Committee attended the opening - Lee Tarlamis MP, John Pandazopoulos MP, Martin Foley MP, Nicholas Kydas, Steve Kyritsis, Ange Kenos, Chris Mingos, John Salpigitidis, Vicky Mastihi and many others.
Well done!
