Utica, NY: The Rotary Club of Utica, honored five local workers today at their 28 th annual
Pride of Workmanship Awards Program. The program was presented during Utica Rotary’s
weekly luncheon at the Yahnundasis Golf and Country Club in New Hartford.

Hien Chau – The Fountainhead Group
Wendy Gagliardo – Resource Center for Independent Living
Barbara Laible – The Observer Dispatch

The awards program comes after a request for nominations from area businesses. This year saw a significant increase in the number of employees being nominated for this award. The Rotary Club of Utica reviewed all of the candidates through a special committee to determine the top area employees deserving of the ‘Pride of Workmanship’ recognition.
Utica Rotary Club President Joseph Caruso said “The Rotary Club of Utica is especially honored to present the Pride of Workmanship awards to area employees who are nominated by their own managers or co-workers. These workers have gone above and beyond their normal work duties to make a special impact at work and in our community.”
