I had the honour of attending the Organisation of Hellene and Hellene-Cypriot Women of Australia's International Women's Day luncheon on 8 March in Brighton‑Le‑Sands.
International Women's Day is a time to celebrate and acknowledge the accomplishments of the women in our lives, and the contribution they have made to society.
It was an honour to attend the event that paid tribute to four women in particular for their outstanding contributions to the Greek and Cypriot community.
I want to congratulate all the women who received Awards of Excellence on the day and thank them for the tireless work they do to ensuring our community is a better place for all women.
A special thank you also to Irene Anestis OAM, President of the Organisation, for the invitation, along with Mayor of Bayside City Council, Councillor Joe Awada and Councillor Vickie Poulos, who also attended.
