The award ceremony took place in the yard of the home of Michael Dukakis in the town of Brookline, Massachusetts.

Deputy Foreign Minister Kostas Vlassis participated in the ceremony via internet and in his speech he congratulated Dukakis on his services in political life and in the Greek-American community, as well as for his support of Greek National Issues. He also stressed that his overall career in U.S. public life, always keeping his eyes on Greece, was an example to be imitated and a source of inspiration for the younger generations of Greek-Americans, according to an announcement by the deputy minister’s office.
