The members of the presidium and of the pan-continental Federation, after offering continental traditional dishes to the regional governor, danced and sang to the continental Levantine rhythms. They wished and thanked the regional governor for the long-term support to the people of Epirus, which was expressed by his commitment to contribute to the realization of the decades-long vision for the “Home of Epirus”.
For his part, Mr. Patoulis pointed out that people who value culture and traditions have nothing to fear. “Throughout the years, both as mayor and as regional governor of Attica, I have supported every action aimed at preserving our cultural and historical heritage. With our specific actions, projects and initiatives, we highlight history and tradition and support the Epirotians who have offered so much to Greece. With their self-sacrifice and their significant donations, they laid the pillars for our nation to be resurrected and for cities like Athens to acquire emblematic buildings,” the regional governor pointed out.
