Each year, Keep Sarasota County Beautiful asks the community to nominate individuals who, time and time again, demonstrate their commitment to our environment. These individuals are then recognized at the Keep Sarasota County Beautiful Annual Volunteer Awards Recognition Dinner.
This year, Plymouth Harbor is proud to announce that we nominated our very own volunteer superstar, Bert Adams (an employee in our Smith Care Center). To no one’s surprise, Bert’s nomination was well-received, and she was invited to attend the annual dinner where she received the prestigious Guy Hudson Award for promoting volunteer interest and participation!
The 27th annual dinner was held on November 4, 2015, at Robarts Area, and was hosted by Tampa Bay Rays Emcee, Bobby Milliken, and the Oriole Bird. A group of Plymouth Harbor employees attended the event alongside Bert’s family to cheer her on and support efforts being made throughout the county that promote environmental stewardship and innovation through education and action.
Bert’s award is not only well-deserved, but extremely fitting as it “recognizes an extraordinary life-long volunteer who has contributed to litter prevention and public awareness efforts.” Since Bert started at Plymouth Harbor in 1991, she has been committed to involving employees and their family members in volunteer efforts throughout the county. She has consistently organized company volunteer cleanup projects, and her efforts go beyond beautification.
Bert is the reason Plymouth Harbor adopted All Faiths Food Bank as our corporate charitable project, and she continually participates and promotes other local charities, such as the Crop Walk, the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, and many more.
Both Sarasota County and Plymouth Harbor are extremely lucky to have Bert Adams as member of our team — congratulations, Bert!
