Great day at the  Club
Feast Day of
St Constantine and St Helen

The Kazzie Club celebrated the feast day of our Patron Saints, Sts Constantine and Helen, on 27 May at the Clubrooms.  VCE recognition awards were presented to Sophia Alexandra Davis and Anthony Stabelos.  The Kastellorizian Young Achiever Award went to Sebastian Kritikides for his endeavours in the field of music.  Apart from the great vibes and excellent catering, it was pleasing to see lots of young people and children attending.

Special guests were our local member, the Hon Martin Foley, and the Mayor of the City of Port Phillip, Bernadene Voss.  It was a magical day, and extremely well attended.  Please visit our gallery here for a pictorial round-up and report prepared by Dr George Stabelos.
