Happy New Year! Wow, 2020.
One of the programs honoring the work of our employees is the Circle of Excellence program. Each month during the season, our employees submit a nomination form that recognizes those who go above and beyond their normal duties. The COE committee is composed of one person from each department who reviews the nominations on a monthly basis, then votes for the best nominees. Each winner is then reviewed by the departments and voted on for an annual award. This year’s monthly award winners were: Aubrey Garrett (Member Services), Christie Henson (Banquet Manager), Robb Robinette (Mechanic), Jason Book (Bartender), and Becky Gilmore (cook, soup maker). I’m pleased to announce that both Becky Gilmore and Jason Book are our annual COE recipients.
Both Becky and Jason have done an outstanding job all year, exemplifying the standards that we would want in any employee. Becky has been here 34 years and is by far the most senior of all employees. Day in, day out, she sets a standard for Darrin in the kitchen. Jason has done an outstanding job behind the bar, crafting new drinks and typically making us all giggle even after a bad round.
I’m very proud of the team we have assembled and am pleased even more with the Circle of Excellence winners. I ask you all to congratulate each of them on a job well done.
Thanks for all of your support this year, and here’s looking forward to a great new decade!
