On Wednesday, January 13th Summerhill staff that was able gathered in the dining room for a staff appreciation luncheon. Aylmer and dietary staff had put out a lovely spread of Swedish meatballs with noodles, Greek salad and brownies. As everyone that was able to attend was enjoying their feast, Maria Towers was able to "sneak" up to Sfa Whittemore's table to expose the surprise. Sfa was Summerhill's Employee of the Year for 2015!!!!! Congratulations Sfa for this well deserved honor.
The way this works is this....... Residents, families and staff vote each month for an Employee of the Month. At the end of the year, the nominations are all added up and whoever has the most becomes the Employee of the Year.
Sfa has been with us several years as a Resident Assistant with our Resident Care Department. Sfa comes to work on time no matter weather etc and comes with a wonderful attitude, ready to care for in any way our residents. She is loved by residents and respected by coworkers. Thank you Sfa for being such an important part of The Summerhill Team.
