The “Pride of Workmanship” concept was instigated in Australia by our very own Rotary District in 1975. It was designed to encourage more pride by Australians in their vocations. Owing to its theme: "Do it once, do it well, build a better Australia", and its dedicated presentation ceremony, Pride of Workmanship Awards Nights have strengthened the connection between Rotary clubs and local business communities across the country, and around the world.
In 2019, our Rotary Club of North Sydney held a combined Awards Night with the Rotary Club of Crows Nest, Lane Cove, and North Sydney Sunrise at the Northbridge Golf Club. Throughout the night we witnessed the recognition of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Our club had the great pleasure in presenting Pride of Workmanship awards to Peter Le of Chatswood Toyota, and Robert Lopez from Norths Club in Cammeray. Both these gentlemen have exhibited outstanding customer service in their prospective industries.
Special thanks to Tom Sweeney from the Rotary Club of Crows Nest for conducting another wonderful evening.
