At a special event held in Chania on Tuesday 6th August, the Cretan Brotherhood of Melbourne was proclaimed an Official Partner of the National Research Foundation Eleftherios K Venizelos.
The huge honour was in recognition of the efforts of the Cretan Brotherhood in celebrating and promoting the legacy of
Eleftherios Venizelos over many years.
The Cretan Brotherhood would also like to congratulate the former President of the Pancretan Association of America and the World Council of Cretans Emmanuel E. Velivasakis who was personally bestowed the same honour at the event.
President Michael Houdalakis and Secretary Jim Papadimitriou accepted the award on behalf of the Cretan Brotherhood.
This is a great honour for our club which we dedicate to our founding members.
