Each year we gather together with all of our staff and we reward our team members for the great job that they do throughout the year. Traditionally, we have a picnic with games, craft activities, and fellowship. This year we sadly had to cancel our awards picnic due to the current global pandemic.
However, we still wanted to celebrate our team members who are working hard to keep their communities running and safe in this time. In early April, we got together as a team and were all able virtually assemble through a video conference. From Houston to Tallahassee to Fort Myers, all of our team members were able to join our meeting and celebrate with us. This was a much needed break from the social isolation that we had been enduring. We were able to recognize our team members, especially those who went above and beyond in 2019. Some of those recognized with awards for their outstanding work include: Craig Graves of Quail Hollow for New Homes Sold and Re-Sales, Sal Fatzie of Palm Terrace for PKO’s Sold, Chris Thompson of Magnolia Village for Most Outstanding Land-Lease Community, Mark Lind of Caribbean Isles for Most Outstanding Resident-Owned Community, Doug Roper of Winterset RV Resort for Most Outstanding RV Community, and the much coveted President’s Award went to Tom and LaDonna Campbell of Jetstream RV Resort. Although we missed out on our typical picnic of food, games, and fellowship, it was still great to be able to connect in this difficult time.
Thank you to all our Team Members for the dedication and hard work shown in 2019. We are so blessed with our Newby Team and are anticipating a great 2020! We hope to see everyone in person at next year’s award picnic!
