If you know anything about what has been going on here in Salem this past month, at least with the weather, you will easily understand why Tim was our unanimous choice for this award. January has equaled SNOW and other nasty weather, and part of Tim's job is to deal with the snow. When it snows here in January, it seems to snow in 20-inch increments, and that is a lot of snow.
Here at the Hawthorne Hotel, we have declared a snow-free zone, which is nice for our guests, and for people who come to dine, or have events here, but it equals a lot of cold, difficult work for members of our maintenance crew.
In respect of all the work Tim did during January, and for all the other things he does for us, we were very happy to honor him with this award. Tim seemed especially pleased when he learned that part of his award is a day off with pay -- as he received that part of his envelope of goodies, he said with a laugh "the next day it snows!"
