Brooke O'Keefe Named Hawthorne Hotel Part-Time EOM

For any of you who follow this blog regularly and for some time, you will likely already recognize Brooke O'Keefe as one of our chefs here at the Hawthorne Hotel. However, Brooke recently 'retired' to become a full-time stay-at-home mom, and we miss her a lot!

So much so, in fact, that from time to time we coax her out of 'retirement' to come and fill in for us on a part-time basis.

It was because of her service to our customers in this regard that she was recently voted to be our Part-time Employee of the Month for January.

Surprise! Brooke was a bit incredulous when she saw us all arrive to make the award, since she was the only one there.

It is not customary that we have the families of our employees present when they receive their awards, but since Ken is our Executive Sous Chef, he actually had to be there. Since when Brooke works, it is only when Ken is off doing 'daddy-duty' he had to bring the little one along. Isn't this the sweetest family!

I hope you enjoy learning a little bit more about the things that happen 'behind the scenes' that make our organization function.
