"I would like to say ‘thank you’ for all the hard work and efforts you all put in to present these events for our pleasure and enjoyment.  Last night the short film and talk on ‘The Amorgos Conspiracy’ was so interesting.  The reception and refreshments which followed were excellent and were again proof of all the efforts made.  Efharisto para poli."
