Co.As.It. Community Services reached a 40 year milestone in 2018, providing aged care and community services in Queensland since 1978. Celebrating this anniversary, a Christmas themed luncheon was shared with over 400 clients at the Kedron-Wavell Services Club in Chermside. The event was held on Saturday 1st December in the Blue Room and the free event was a huge success.
Dina Ranieri, Co.As.It. CEO says: “I am honoured to witness this amazing milestone and be a testament to the positive impact our organisation has made on the South East Queensland community.”
The lunch was attended by clients, staff and committee members who were treated to a three course luncheon, live music by Walter’s Band and a documentary video on the history of Co.As.It. that included an interview with the founder, Fiorenza Jones. The event featured a lucky table prize of the delicious Italian Christmas cake “panettone” for one guest from each table.
One of Co.As.It. Clients John Lind wrote of the event:
“We were amazed by your love and care shown to us yesterday. Obviously Saturday was but a sample of all that has happened over the last 40 years and certainly shown to us in the last few months for Joe, and the last 13-14 months for myself. Your staff have always been kind considerate, willing to help and thorough in all their help towards us.”
