With Tereza and Elvis
On Sunday, as an alternative to that conference, I attended a big gathering of Italian pensioners. I declared that old friends are the best friends and thanked the organisation, the Blacktown Italian Pensioners’ Association, for supporting me 20 years ago in the 1991 State election when people thought I had no chance. Tereza Monzo, the long-term President of the Association, was being honoured by her daughter, Norma, and her son, Aldo. Helena and I joined former colleague, John Aquilina and his wife Anne in this celebration, keeping in touch with the people who put us in public office.
They backed me in the 1991 election and 20 years later I was honoured to be able to turn up and thank them again.
And they know my taste in music. Scott Crawford, an Elvis impersonator of distinction, delivered all the familiar numbers. Maybe you want Scott to perform for you? He can be reached on 0412 614 416.
