To learn more about that brilliant concept the WELCOME WALL, go tö:
"THE WELCOME WALL - A NATIONAL TRIBUTE TO ALL IMMIGRANTS
In one of history's great migrations, more than six million people have crossed the world to settle in Australia.
To honour their achievements a Welcome Wall 100 metres long is being built next to the National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour (Sydney). It's close by the Pyrmont docks where millions of new settlers first stepped ashore in Australia.
As a truly national project The Welcome Wall honours migrants wherever they landed and wherever they live.
This database stores historical information about the people named on the Welcome Wall— when and how they came, who they came with and where they lived. These stories are also accessible on a computer terminal in the Museum foyer.
It costs just $105 (including GST) to commemorate your family name in bronze, and record their story on our database."
[Like Dave, the names of both my parents, Con George Poulos, and Envangalia (Angela) Coroneos, have been added to the Welcome Wall.]
I thoroughly recommend that all Kytherians place their parents/grandparents etc names onto the Welcome Wall.

Yanni and Katina Feros on their 3-wheeled jalopy during the mid-1980s. They were a lovely couple, full of energy and life. From their garden in Paliopoly they harvested wonderful fruit and vegetables which they sold on the platia in Hora most days of the summer. Yanni was enormously strong. He suffered I believe from extreme arthritis and had a major problem with his legs. Even though they were amputated above the knee a few years after this photo, he still was active in his garden, draging himself, spade in hand, along on padded elbows. Yanni died a few years ago - I think in 2001.

LOCALS FROM TRIFYLLANIKA KEEP COOL UNDER THE ''CAMARA''

A picture of Arthur Frilingos and myself me (as First Secretary - Immigration, Australian Embassy) at Athens Airport on Anzac Day 25 April 1972. The box Arthur is carrying contains a wreath. We had to rush Arthur straight from the airport to the Anzac Day service at the Australian War Cemetery so he could place the wreath on behalf of Parramatta RSL.
Background: from the message board section:
The present generation of Kytherians may be glad to know that the documentary film, Return to Kythera, is preserved in the archives of ScreenSound Australia (formerly the National Film and Sound Institute)in Canberra, Australia. I commissioned the film on behalf of the Australian Department of Immigration in 1972 and assisted in its production. The film centres on Parramatta RSL member Arthur Frlingos returning to Kythera to meet his sister for the first time – she was born after he left Greece in 1912. With a music track of haunting folk songs sung by Eugenia Burk, the film was shown on Greek television as a lead-in to the telecast of the 1972 Munich Olympic. It was later borrowed from the Immigration Department film library by just about every Kytherian organisation in Australia and is still listed in the ScreenSound on-line catalogue. It is now part of the cultural legacy of the island of Aphrodite.
A timed copy (one showing a small clock throughout) of the Return to Kythera VHS costs only $A22.50 plus postage/freight (about $10 in Australia). Payment has to be made in advance to Access Officer, Client Access, ScreenSound Australia, National Screen and Sound Archive, McCoy Circuit Acton Canberra ACT 2601, Australia (Tel: +61 2 6248 2125 | fax: + 61 2 6248 2233)
