Winners from the Williston Rotary Club "Nominate an Essential Worker Challenge"

Williston Rotary Club has announced its winners for the Essential Workers Challenge, recognizing outstanding workers and businesses in the community.

In May, the organization asked residents to nominate individuals and companies that they felt have gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic. Williston Rotarian Bruce Conway told the Williston Herald the goal was to highlight those in the community that have continued to serve the public amid coronavirus concerns.

“The stories that touched my heart the most are those of the otherwise unsung heroes that brought joy to those they served, from cleaning service people to the clerks behind the counters, the community lunch service crews and to the hospital and long-term care teams,” Conway said in a release. “The stories include the people that found themselves above their experience level, saw a need, and grew quickly to the challenge. There are those whose ‘everyday’ jobs now were front-and-center, with the special skills they brought that otherwise go unnoticed. These are the folks that stepped up their game and rose to meet unique challenges that we now faced, bringing their sensibility and action.”

With money received from Rotary District 5580, the club will purchase $2,000 in $50 gift certificates from local merchants to award to to those recognized.
