Narooma Rotary Beacon 12 May 2022

Not much to report over the past week but this will soon change, especially with the Pride of Workmanship Awards this week and the return of President Andrew ‘from the old country’ soon after.


Wednesday 11 May: Board Meeting 4pm Lynn Hastings’ home.

Thursday 12 May – POW Awards next week

Ten local employees from Bodalla to Central Tilba will receive our Pride of Workmanship(POW) awards at the presentation dinner this Thursday

It is a partners’ night, a really happy night, and a highlight of our year so hopefully you can come. Numbers must be precise so please book with John Rungen by Tuesday afternoon. If you can’t come for some reason, please ring John and let him know otherwise you might be charged for your meal.

We invited employersto nominate an employee who displays outstanding qualities in terms of approach, attitude, dedication and commitment to his or her job. We emphasise it’s not a competition. This programme publicly recognises the value of having pride in personal performance in the workplace, hence the scheme’s motto ‘Do it once, do it well’. The advantage to employers is it gives them the opportunity to reward a particular employee plus potentially spread a ‘Pride of Workmanship’ among their staff and the wider community.

Nominees will be presented with a framed certificate by VP Ange Ulrichsen at our presentation dinner 6 for 6.30pm. Our MC for the evening will be David McInnes. The cost is $40 p.p. (Ten nominations from 40 invitations is again a 25% success rate!)

Don’t forget to book with Andrew who will host the next Business Breakfast.
