The sons' of Club Italia's George Molnar and John Esposito shone brightly in the latest edition of the Aldo Cuccurullo Memorial Trophy match in Nelson.
Our President, Ginette Toscano Page, was joined by husband/club trustee Robin and the rest of her family at the function at which the Italian Ambassador, His Excellency Alessandro Levi Sandri, announced that Ginette had been awarded the distinction of Cavaliere by the Italian Government.
As happens with such awards Ginette had known about the award for several months but was sworn to secrecy and not a word got out about it beforehand.
However, no one should have been surprised at the award, such has been the dedicated service that Ginette has given to the club and the Italian community in Wellington. Not only has Ginette served magnificently as President of the club for four terms of two years – a total of eight years – but she had also previously served as club Secretary.
