I received this letter from Mr. George Koukoudakis, the Mayor of Hydra. More than 200 Forum members spent a memorable weekend (many of us longer!) on the island in June.

Dear Mr Arjatsalo,
We also had a great time during your stay in Hydra. It was an honour for us. I would like to thank you and the members of the forum you represent for the help you provide to the Island of Hydra and especially for those in need. Soon we will propose to you some social care projects of the Municipality (social supermarket, social pharmacy etc) that the money you want to donate can be devided.
Meanwhile i would like to inform you that on the 13th of July the Ambassadoe of Canada in Greece was in Hydra. I ask him to help the Municipality of Hydra to establish twinning relationship with the Municipality of Montreal, the birth place of Leonard Cohen. I want to ask your help and the help of your forum towards this goal.
We will be in touch for both of the aforementioned issues.
Thank yoy very much for your help and co-operation. I would also like to express my warm congratulations for the wonderfu work you are doing.
Mayor of Hydra
