On Thursday, December 8, Presbyterian Homes & Services hosted its 38th annual employee recognition dinner at Vernon Downs Hotel and Casino. Forty-nine employees were honored for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and, yes, even 35 years of service! Nearly 200 employees attended the event. First acknowledgements were given to employees working the evening shift at Presbyterian Homes & Services, who were unable to attend the event.

“We are a 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week operation. We would never be able to function if it wasn’t for our dedicated staff,” stated Chris Durr, Administrator of the Presbyterian Home for Central New York.

“We work hard at developing a culture of employee recognition and appreciation,” stated Michael Sweeney, President and CEO of Community Wellness Partners, which is now an affiliate of Presbyterian Homes & Services. “Our staff go above and beyond every single day, and I am always amazed at their energy and consideration of the people we serve.”

Employees enjoyed award presentations, followed by a wonderful meal and dancing to the sounds of DJ Michael Viti.
