Congratulations to our 2018 Volunteer award recipients:
VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR - STEFAN
The Edmund Rice Camps SA Volunteer of the Year Award is an initiative developed to recognise and celebrate volunteer effort within our community. The award recognises and honours a single volunteer each year through a peer nomination process.
Stefan has proved himself to be an integral part of our community in 2018. His commitment to ERCSA both on camp and behind the scenes is admirable, and his unwavering passion and dedication to the cause makes him a very valued part of our community.
RISING STAR - TAYAH
The Edmund Rice Camps SA Rising Star Award aims to recognise one volunteer who has started their volunteering journey with ERCSA within the last 12 months, who has shown considerable leadership potential and who has made an impression on those around them including both participants and volunteers. This award also takes into account their commitment to our mission, their compassion and their presence on our programs.
Tayah joined us in early 2018 and after a memorable start to the year she has shown herself to be an enthusiastic and engaging leader. Tayah’s vibrant personality and immense dedication to the Edmund Rice ethos has made a welcomed impression on our community.
FIRE CARRIER - ALEX
The Edmund Rice Camps SA Fire Carrier Award aims to recognise one volunteer who has perpetuated the values of Edmund Rice and his spirit within the organisation within the last 12 months. This person would have shown considerable presence, liberation, and compassion in working with those around them including both participants and volunteers on our programs.
Alex is passionate about the core values of ERCSA and the power of positive relationships. Alex reflects the ERCSA spirit by supporting those we serve, and is also very thoughtful when it comes to empowering everyone to rise together. Alex is a very kind and considered supporting presence to all on camp.
It is with mixed feelings that I wish to announce that Adrian Szabo will be leaving his positon as Volunteer Support Worker here at ERCSA. A feeling of sadness to see him go, and yet happiness to see where the Spirit will take him into 2019 and beyond.
Adrian joined ERCSA as a volunteer in 2013 and has been an integral part of the organisation since then. In 2017 Adrian took on the role of Volunteer Support Worker, and has worked to continue to be a valuable member of our community in this role.
Adrian’s outgoing personality (and interesting choice in shirts!) has helped to create a welcoming environment for all. His contributions and presence both as a volunteer and staff member will be missed.
I have no doubt that wherever Adrian takes himself next he will continue to prove himself as a passionate, dedicated member of that organisation. I also have no doubt that we will see Adrian back at ERCSA in some capacity in the future.
I am sure that many of you will want to take the opportunity to thank Adrian for his time and wish him well. Adrian’s last day will be Monday 17th December and we will be organising a farewell for this day, which we will send you the details of shorty.
If you are unable to attend the farewell, please feel free to send Adrian a quick email, I am sure he would appreciate hearing from you.
On a personal note, I would like to formally thank Adrian for the time that we have shared together over the past few years. The highs, the lows, and everything in between are memories that I will forever treasure. The interesting choice in shirts I probably won’t miss as much!
Looking forward to celebrating Adrian’s time with ERCSA on Monday 17th December.
Again, on behalf of ERCSA I would like to wish Adrian all the best. It’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon.
