Greeting The New Greek Consul General

It was a great pleasure to have Stratos Efthymiou, the new Consul General of Greece and members of the Alpha Omega Council visit with me at my State House office recently. Mr Efthymiou is a career diplomat who has served Greek’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for several years. Although he speaks six different languages we exchanged ideas in English.

I have collaborated with Consul General’s office for many years on the annual Greek Independence Day celebration and the annual presentation of the arrival from Greece of the handmade laurel wreaths which are given to the eventual winners of the Boston Marathon, I host each of these events at the State House.

The Consul General of Greece in Boston serves a jurisdiction that included Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. I wish him the very best in his new capacity and I look forward to working with him in the future.
