December Employee of the Month 2012

Today we recognized Mike O'Meara as our Full-time Employee of the Month for December.

Mike is a banquet captain here at the Hawthorne Hotel, as well as for Hawthorne Catering, our off-site catering division.  His work is of the highest caliber, as evidenced by the excellent comments we receive about how well he attends to the details of making a banquet event happen. Mike has been with us since 1997, and his combined years of experience show in everything he does.  

Beyond his expertise, Mike is extremely dedicated to the Hawthorne Hotel.  Just two days before a very important event he was rear-ended in a horrible motor vehicle accident.  While he luckily only received contusions, he was in a good deal of pain but came to work anyway to supervise what was going on on that important day, because he would not have it any other way.  That is just the kind of person he is.

Here are the photos of our awards presentation:

The team had a good laugh when we asked Chef Steve to join in the photo and he decided to do so by standing right in front of Mike.

The banquet department loves to see one of their own recognized in this way.

One happy guy!

Mike received a gift certificate to Nathaniel's as well as a day off with pay.  We know a certain someone in the O'Meara household who will be thrilled to be Mike's date for that dinner.

It is well-deserved, Mike!  Thank you for all that you do for us all.
