Dear Lions of Europe,

On behalf of the Host Committee, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Lions, Leos and their companions not only from Europe but from all over the world as well, to Thessaloniki, to the 66th Lions Europa Forum 2021.

This is the third Forum organized by MD117 Greece-Cyprus. The other two were held in Limassol, Cyprus in 1990 and 2003. I am confident that the Members of the Host Committee and the many volunteers, who have worked very hard, will make this a memorable Forum.

Over 85 separate events will be held from Wednesday 6 October to Saturday 9 October 2021.

The Opening and Closing Ceremonies, as well as the Welcome Reception will be held at Thessaloniki Concert Hall, a very impressive, state of the art building right by the Thessaloniki promenade which is a twenty-minute walk to City Centre and the famous Ladadika, where you will find numerous taverns for all tastes, serving meals and ouzo with traditional music.

The Thomas Kutti music competition will be held at Thessaloniki State Conservatory, a classic building founded in 1914.

All other events will be held at the forum Hotel including the Host’s Macedonian night and the Gala Reception, both will include our traditional hospitality with carefully selected local and international music and of course the very delicious local cuisine, serving a variety of local beverages.

We also consider our forum as one of the richest in the number of topics and as a turning point in the meaning that in addition to the organizational, charitable, and operating issues and the various social events, of which we are deprived for so long, we shall approach the Ideological part of our Association and the broad horizons of activities that this approach could open.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Thessaloniki and we are sure that you will enjoy the city, the nice weather, the many sights of interest, and, finally to have fruitful contributions to the Forum discussions.
