Meghan Bouton receives Mill Service Recognition Award
Cooperstown, NY - The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard awarded their 2006 Service Recognition Award to team member Meghan Bouton of West Burlington at the annual Team Recognition Banquet held at Templeton Hall in Cooperstown. Some 68 team members and guests enjoyed a delicious dinner of seasonal fresh foods prepared by Chef Lucy Townsend. They celebrated a successful season and recognized one another with individual, often humorous, memories of the year.
The evening highlight was the award presentation to Bouton. This annual award recognizes a team member’s dedication to the Michaels family and fellow team members, and for making the Mill a fun place to work. Meghan Bouton received the award for her infectious positive attitude and willingness to assume additional responsibilities. “Meghan is not afraid to ask questions and always offers a helpful answer,” says Brenda Michaels, co-owner of the Mill. Lin Molloy, the Mill’s Personnel Leader says, “The ability to multi-task and be cross trained is a trait that we seek in all team members and Megan is a shining example. This along with her winning personality has set a standard for all our young team members.” Meghan is currently a freshman at Oswego State University, working at the Mill during breaks and plans to return next summer.
The Mill team members, numbering over 38 full and part-time, enjoy other social events and training seminars throughout the year. For the coming spring plans are underway for a two-day motorcoach trip to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Several positions for the 2007 season are currently posted on the Mill’s website at www.flycreekcidermill.com.
