Merrimack Rotary seeks Nominations for Excellence
Friday, March 22, 2013
The Rotary Club of Merrimack seeks people who live or work in Merrimack and have displayed outstanding performance in their jobs. If you know such a person, the Merrimack Rotary would like to hear from you, and be able to recognize your nominee at the annual “Excellence in the Workplace” meeting. This is not a competition, therefore all nominees who attend will be honored.
“One of the tenets of Rotary is to know that all occupations have value and should be recognized as such,” said Chris Christensen of the Merrimack Rotary Club.
“Have you ever said ‘I go to (this business) because (Samantha) is always professional and takes care of everything I need’ or ‘I really wasn’t sure how to fix this but (Joe) at (this store) understood the problem and had a perfect solution,’” Christensen said, “In the past, we have recognized store clerks and managers, bookkeepers, landscapers, secretaries and nurses. It’s a long and varied list. Who do you know? Somebody who works for you, or a co-worker? Maybe it’s the guy who takes care of your car or fixes your furnace. If they do a great job, they should be honored as part of Rotary’s ‘Excellence in the Workplace.’”
The Rotary Club of Merrimack will recognize nominees at 7:15-8:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 18, at the John O’Leary Adult Community Center.
The event cost is $35, which includes two buffet breakfasts catered by the Stocked Fridge.
To nominate somebody, please e-mail Joyce Jobin at firstname.lastname@example.org, or co-chair Chris Christensen at Chris@ChristensenNH.com. Please include your contact information and that of your nominee, who you want to nominate, and why your nominee deserves public recognition. The deadline for nominations is April 1.
The Rotary Club of Merrimack, founded in 1971, is a volunteer organization of business people and professionals supporting the community.
