Back in June we reported how proud we were of our very own Dr Renato Vecchies on being awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the 2018 Queen's Birthday honours list.
He had to wait a little while to receive the actual medal, but he recently attended an official presentation held in Victoria's Government House ballroom. He can be seen here receiving the the medal, presented by Victoria's Governor, the Honourable Linda Dessau AC.
In addition to receiving the medal, the presentation offered a chance to enjoy an afternoon tea and a glass of champagne at Government House. We are so pleased and proud of this wonderful achievement by Dr Vecchies. Congratulations!
