Dr. George Ujvary the CEO of Olga’s Fine Foods, a major sponsor of last year’s Carols by the Lake, was Guest Speaker at our meeting on May 22.

George told of how his parents immigrated to Australia after World War II and established a restaurant in Adelaide featuring food made to his mother’s recipes.  Such was the demand for some of the products they closed the restaurant and opened a butcher shop.  This led to the formation of the present company which now distributes its products to all major supermarket chains.

In recognition of his support to our club George was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by President Tony.
