Eatern Health put off an im­pres­sive cer­e­mony at the Har­bour Breeze in Har­bour Grace on April 11 in hon­our of ca­reers and mile­stones. There were cer­tifi­cates given for 25, 30, 35 and 40 years of ser­vice, as well as cer­tifi­cates given to em­ploy­ees who re­tired in 2013.

At a lav­ish cer­e­mony at the Har­bour Breeze in Har­bour Grace on April 11, East­ern Health hon­oured the ca­reers and mile­stones of some of its em­ploy­ees.

It was a part of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s an­nual ser­vice and re­tire­ment award cer­e­mony for the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion re­gion.

Recog­ni­tion was given to those who have ac­cu­mu­lated 25, 30, 35 and 40 years of ser­vice with the health author­ity, as well as all of those who re­tired in 2013.

At the cer­e­mony, 45 for­mer em­ploy­ees were set to be hon­oured for their re­tire­ment, while 64 were to re­ceived ser­vice awards. Of those, 25 re­tirees were hon­oured along with 35 em­ploy­ees who re­ceived ser­vice awards.

The in­vi­tees were treated to a buf­fet lun­cheon prior to the cer­e­mony.

While treat­ing them­selves to ei­ther de­lec­ta­ble desserts or tan­ta­liz­ing wraps, those in at­ten­dance chat­ted am­i­ca­bly, shar­ing jokes and sto­ries.

At­ten­dees smiled proudly as they ac­cepted their awards, and en­er­get­i­cally ap­plauded to sup­port their col­leagues.

Re­tirees ac­cepted a large print de­pict­ing a scene from a St. John’s street.
