Today is a big day at Chartiers as we recognize our staff and celebrate 50 years of service for Chartiers Center. Helping us celebrate our milestone is Representative Dan Miller who sent us a warm letter of congratulations and Sue Means, Allegheny County Office of County Council who presented Chartiers with a Certificate of Recognition.
Today we combine our extra special Employee Appreciation celebration with Chartiers Centers birthday party! We have had fun with the 50 days of raffle prizes and of course Katherine’s poems announcing the winners. We have celebrated by guessing the number of purple and green M&M’s in a jar. And with today’s GRAND FINALE all employees were recognized with a special “50th” cookie and a gift of appreciation.
Sue Coyle, Chartiers Center’s CEO sent the following message to all employees, “2018 is a special year for Chartiers Center as we celebrate 50 years of serving the needs of our neighbors. You all amaze me every day in so many ways. I see how you talk to clients; little things you do for them; patiently sit and coach while they try to master a task that lasts forever; supporting them in their confusion and sometimes frustration. I also see those not in clinical roles who recognize that the more they can do, the more time our caregivers can do with the clients. Your efforts are not unnoticed or unappreciated. To us you are Super Heroes. In your honor, on behalf of the Executive Team and the Board of Directors, we celebrate today with tokens of appreciation.”
