27th PRIDE OF WORKMANSHIP AWARDS
 
The Port Lincoln Rotary Club, Pride of Workmanship Awards will be held again on Tuesday the 23rd May.  This year we are encouraging sporting clubs who wish to recognise the effort of their volunteers as well as business to be involved.  For more information contact Craig Faulkhead 0417848618.
 
The Pride of Workmanship awards were instigated in 1975 by the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills in Australia, and spread through the Rotary Clubs throughout the world with the Port Lincoln Rotary Club joining in the late 1980s.  The Pride of Workmanship Program enables managers in our society to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction, and publicly recognize them for their efforts.  The objective of the program is to provide employers with an opportunity to recognize employees who display the qualities worthy of an Award, and epitomise the Pride of Workmanship theme which is "Do it once- do it well". 
 
Last year, the guest speaker John Lynch CEO of the Royal Flying Doctor Service central division likened the awardees dedication to their respective jobs to the dedication that all of the people who make up the RFDS have to that organisation.
The RFDS make an average of 11 flights per day just to the Eyre Peninsula, the organisation has some 64 aircraft Australia wide.
