Everyone remembers clearly the last time they had exceptional service from anyone. We are always pleased when we receive outstanding personal service or an unexpected benefit in the course of everyday life.

Why should we always be so surprised? ….because it does not cost anything. Not everyone always gives their best to provide outstanding service to their customers or clients. On Bribie Island with only a few large organisations and many smaller ones, we all deal with some of them from time to time.

How nice it is to experience someone who is proud of what they do, and takes great pride in giving their best effort for the benefit of you and their employer. It is such an attitude that differentiates successful individuals and businesses, from the many who are not. Once a year the Rotary Club of Bribie Island seeks to identify some individuals in our community who have gone the extra mile and take great pride in their work. Over dinner at Pacific Harbour Country Club, a large and proud crowd gathered to pay tribute to recipients of this year’s Rotary Pride of Workmanship awards.

Pride of Workmanship Plaque presented to recipients

The following Bribie Island employees and volunteers were nominated and received this prestigious award. Bob Newell (Bribie Butterfly House), Kylie Van Doren (Bribie Island State High School), Karen Mills (Banksia Beach State School), Amanda Menzies (Bribie Island State School), William Goddard (Queensland Fire and Emergency Services), Uncle Ronald Powell (Bribie Island Community Kindergarten), John Wilson (Bernie’s Courses on the Run). All of these people exceeded the expectations of their organisation and work colleagues, and made significant contributions to their chosen vocation worthy of public acknowledgement.

They have all lived by the Rotary slogan of DO IT ONCE…..DO IT WELL….. BUILD A BETTER AUSTRALIA. Guests and Awardees were hosted by Rotary President Jeff Eustace and members of Bribie Rotary Club at a memorable evening where their individual contributions were recognised.

The Objectives of the annual Pride of Workmanship Program focus on the importance of staff recognition, and the sense of Community pride that reflects on the individual and the organisation. This Global Program of Rotary has been run annual Australia and around the world for many years, and this year’s seven Bribie Island recipients join a global group of people who have contributed to “Excellence in the Workplace” for the benefit of all. They were each presented with an engraved plaque mounted on a wooden shield.
