IT WAS a night to re­mem­ber for Gayn­dah and Mundubbera Guardian Phar­macy staff mem­bers af­ter own­ers Sam and Gra­ham Rowles held a din­ner in recog­ni­tion of all the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion their staff show.

“It was a chance to cel­e­brate to­gether and the theme was ‘Cel­e­brat­ing You’,” Mrs Rowles said.

“The girls re­ceived per­son­alised gifts and gor­geous flow­ers from both of our very tal­ented florists.”

Mrs Rowles said all 16 of the staff that make up the Gayn­dah and Mundubbera Guardian Phar­ma­cies were treated to a three-course meal that made for a beau­ti­ful night.

“It’s not of­ten you can get that many in­spir­ing, car­ing and beau­ti­ful peo­ple in one room,” Mrs Rowles said.

“We feel very lucky for what we have and the achieve­ments we have all shared. We wanted to host this func­tion in town to use the North Bur­nett’s best as­sets.

“We are lo­cals sup­port­ing our com­mu­nity and other lo­cal busi­nesses.”

Mrs Rowles also wanted to make spe­cial men­tion of her busi­ness part­ner and hus­band Gra­ham on 26 years in the in­dus­try.

“He is the rea­son each of us have so many amaz­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties,” Mrs Rowles said.

“He shared his pas­sion of phar­macy all those years ago and has gen­tly en­cour­aged us all to never give up.

“Gra­ham has shown us what is pos­si­ble if we worked hard and why we do what we do, he has made most of us the peo­ple we are to­day.”

Mrs Rowles said all staff wanted to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of Mr Rowles, af­fec­tion­ately known as “Big Boss” among the staff.

“It’s not what you have, it’s who you share it with,” Mrs Rowles said.
