Ten employees nominated by their employers were celebrated at Narooma Rotary’s annual Pride of Workmanship Awards at a special dinner at Narooma Golf Club on Thursday.
“It’s such an uplifting evening, giving employers the opportunity to publicly recognise how much they appreciate key staff members for what they contribute to their workplace,” said Awards MC Rotarian David McInnes. “A great strength of these awards is it’s not a competition; everyone nominated is a winner.
“These awards also show that these businesses care about their employees and our community is the better for that. A common thread in the citations this year is happiness and smiles which make us all feel welcome.”
Narooma Rotary Vice President Ange Ulrichsen presented awards to Kristy Buchan (Bodalla Pub), Teagan Nicholson (Dalmeny Long Day Child Care Centre), Kasey Jones (Dromedary Hotel), Jim Sharpe (Estia Health), Tracey Cooper (IRT Dalmeny), Layton Moore (Narooma Fishing & Dive Centre), Gayle Allison (Narooma High School), Adrian Mahony (Narooma Ice Creamery Café), Michelle Harding (Narooma Ice Creamer Café) and Chrissy Lansley (Tilba Dairy).
Awards organiser Laurelle Pacey said Narooma Rotarians are really proud of this programme and the support it receives from local businesses.
“I’m always quite moved by the citations we receive about nominees; some are quite emotional showing just how much they’re valued by their bosses in so many ways. It makes these Awards all the more worthwhile.”
Jim Sharpe and Gayle Allison were unable to attend.
