Australia Day Special Award

Cora Zanetti has been an active member of Aspley VIEW Club since 2002. A mainstay of our fundraising program is the monthly luncheon meeting that has a trading table with items for purchase. At considerable personal expense and effort Cora makes, jams, pickles, chutneys and fruitcakes that sell like hotcakes and have raised considerable amount of money for our Club.

As a petite octogenarian, even the transporting of all these goods from her home to our luncheon venue each month is a remarkable effort in addition to everything else she does.

On Australia Day Cora was presented with a Lilley Australian Day Award. Aspley VIEW Club are extremely proud to have Cora as one of our most valued members.
