Rotary Club of Keilor East: Pride of Workmanship Awards

I rise to acknowledge and congratulate the Rotary Club of Keilor East for its successful 2012 Pride of Workmanship awards night held on 28 May,  which I had the  privilege of attending. The objective  of the Pride of Workmanship awards is to  honour those people,  irrespective  of age, gender  or vocation, who show a distinct quality in their approach, attitude and dedication to their vocation. During the  awards night I enjoyed listening to the awardees’ backgrounds  and  hearing  examples  of  their demonstrated commitment to  their respective vocations equally matched by their sense of community.

I  take  this opportunity  to  extend  my sincere  congratulations  to  all five awardees:  Sebastian Carr of the Gladstone Park Shopping Centre, Shelley Lampard of the Keilor East  Leisure Centre, Graham  Elander  of Elander Carpet  Cleaning Service, Lee  Agombar  of  the  Johns  Lyng  Group,  and Reno Chetcuti, owner of Montague Pty  Ltd motor  body workshop. Also  on the  night the  Rotary Club  of Keilor East presented its Shine Award to Elvira Alic, whose story of courage and determination was  an inspiration to us all. Once again,  congratulations to the Rotary Club of Keilor East,  led  by  president  Phil O’Brien, on its successful 2012 Pride of Workmanship Awards night,  and to all five recipients of the award and to Elvira Alic, a worthy recipient of the Shine Award.
