UPDATE: Canadian ambassador to Greece, Robert Peck, and Friends of Canada coordinator, Kathryn Lukey-Coutsocostas, cordially greeted more than 140 guests – including including the president of the Hellenic Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Konstantinos Katsigiannis, and Costas Kontaxis of GreekCanadian Friends In Greece and Eleni Balatsas of Ellinokanadoi stin Athina. Heartfelt singing of the Canadian and Greek national anthems followed, and then it was time for an invigorating Canada Trivia Quiz: four couples answered all ten questions correctly, with one couple ultimately winning the grand prize. Next, the Canada Cake was cut – and many, many souls lingered on late into the evening….
