In keeping with the custom of our host country Greece, CDRSEE board members, staff and friends celebrated by sharing a traditional Greek vasilopita at the headquarters in Thessaloniki. The vasilopita is a new year’s cake with a surprise coin hidden inside. The recipient of the piece of cake containing the coin is assured good luck and prosperity for the year.
Mr. Nikos Efthymiadis, board member, executive committee member and one of the founders of the CDRSEE, had the honor of cutting the traditional vasilopita. He praised the work of the Center and conveyed his pride in what the CDRSEE has grown to represent. Mr. Nenad Sebek, executive director of the CDRSEE, took the opportunity to express his thanks to the board and the Center’s friends for their unending support, and to all staff members for their tireless efforts.
And the winner of this year’s coin? Corinna Noack-Aetopulos, CDRSEE’s director of programmes. The best of luck and good wishes to Corinna!
