Puffed with Pride

We had a huge weekend at work. Let me outline it for you:

  • Friday: set up for meeting, tear down meeting, set up for engagement party, rollerblading night, then set up for Saturday
  • Saturday: Netball from 8:30am to 8:30pm, engagement party, clean up and set up for Sunday
  • Sunday: Netball and Basketball from 8:30am to 5:00pm, clean up from engagement party, feed 200 people lunch
  • Monday: tear down remaining tables and chairs, take in dry cleaning, set up for seniors, reset for Monday sports (Netball and Soccer), just survive Monday 🙂

So, by lunch time on Monday, when we were totally ready for the week again, I sent out an email to everyone who works for the Shire (not just Leisure Centre staff), to brag about what an incredible job everyone at our Centre did. There was no way we could have pulled off a weekend of that magnitude without everyone coming together and doing their share. Everyone pitched in, stayed late, worked harder, tried something new, whatever it took to make sure we all survived and still had a great reputation for quality service after it. I wanted to be sure that everyone was aware of how awesome we are!

I hope everyone who worked this weekend realises what they accomplished for the team, and I hope that the small gesture of saying thank you makes them puff up with pride.


I'd much rather know what you think... let me know :)
