Workers appreciated

To the Editor:

It is hard to believe Fall is on the horizon, so before Summer has completely faded into memory I would like to publically thank a group of individuals.

Each morning I ease past Trident Seafood employees as they head across the street from their plant to the cookhouse and they cheerfully wave good morning. I question is this the beginning of, or are they already on their second break of the day? I wonder if they know how appreciative we are of their dedication to the important work they do and the attitude in which they do it? I hope so.

I try and time my trips to Icicle Seafoods for lunch breaks. I love passing the smiling faces and witnessing the seeming comeradery of the multicultural group of employees as they head to their cookhouse for a meal or run errands in town. I wonder if they know how appreciative we are of their dedication to the important work they do and attitude in which they do it? I hope so.

On Saturday, I was finally able to pat the backs and express my thanks to the cheerful group of Ocean Beauty Seafoods employees for doing a superior job of resurfacing two of the City trails leading from the ball field. The lack of fish coming through Ocean Beauty plant this year caused their management team to offer a crew to our City Parks and Rec Department who gave them the resurfacing task. I wonder if they too know how appreciative we are of their dedication to the important work they do and the attitude in which they do it? I hope so.

I also hope the skippers and their crews hear the respect and appreciation in our voices as we welcome them home from a summer of hard work. In each case these individuals are all working hard to better themselves and in turn benefitting our community.
