Rotary takes pride in workers

Rotary Club of Lismore Central member Anne Thompson and her husband John, proprietors of Jontom Car Sales in Lismore, with their employee Darren McDonald, who was recently presented with a Pride of Workmanship Award.

These days its becoming increasingly difficult to find people who take genuine pride in their work, which is why the Rotary Club of Lismore Central presents special Pride of Workmanship Awards each year to recognise those who go above and beyond for their job.

Rotarian Anne Thompson nominated her own employee, Darren McDonald from Jontom Car Sales, to receive an award and after reviewing the glowing reference from his employers, decided he was certainly a deserving recipient.

Exceptional service and pride in workmanship are sometimes hard to find and our Rotary Club likes to acknowledge and encourage these things, said Anne. Darren is totally committed to the wellbeing of our business and nothing is too much trouble.

Other people who received Pride in Workmanship Awards were Dot Giggins from the Carroll Centre at St Vincents Hospital, Loma Graydon from Southern Cross University, Robert Ramsey from Mary Gilhooleys Pub and the staff at Gibsons Amcal Chemist.

The Rotary Club also believes in recognising those who give their time selflessly for others, and in addition presented a number of Community Service Awards. These were presented to Hillary McPherson of Foster Care and Cathy Mooney for her work with the Leukaemia Foundation.
