On Thursday, November 17, 2011, the Master Composter/Recycler Volunteer Program team (Karen LC, Mark SA, Laura H, and Patty S) were one of the five winners of the City Manager's Awards of Excellence.There was a video clip featuring each of the top three nominees in each of the 5 categories: advancing corporate culture, leadership, innovation, customer service, and stewardship before the winner was announced.
We were the last group featured --and we were the "lucky" ones selected to win the stewardship award.
The award itself is quite beautiful --handblown glass by a local artist and looks like a water droplet. This will help remind us that this recognition belongs to all of you volunteers whose environmental actions are like drops of water making ripples in a pond. Thanks for all your support, and congratulations to all of us!
