Rotary Awards Those Who ‘Do It Once - Do It Well’

Seven Bribie locals were honoured for their outstanding approach, attitude, dedication, and commitment to their job at the latest Rotary Pride of Workmanship Awards, which each year recognise those who, irrespective of age or vocation, display those qualities in the eyes of their employer.

With friends and work colleagues gathering to support the nominees, the glamorous dinner event was held at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club. Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery, accompanied by Councillor Brooke Savige, congratulated the awardees and commented how impressed he was with the quality of awardees and how special the evening was.

Keynote speaker for the evening was Steve Baker, Past President of the Rotary Club of Caboolture, who spoke about his photography career and related it to the idea of ‘doing it once, doing it well’ - the underlying rationale of the awards.
