September 18, 2013, Gulf Shores, AL (GSA) - Congratulations to Holley Byrd of Sea-N-Suds. She is our September recipient for the Chamber's Island Spirit Award.
Holley was presented with the award in a surprise ceremony where Island Spirit Chairman Nora Mandoki cited her nomination, which praised the degree to which Holley goes above and beyond to take great care of customers, always keeping a smile, and serving as a great representative of the Southern hospitality of our community.
The Alabama Gulf Coast Area Chamber of Commerce presents The Island Spirit Award monthly, to an individual who works on the island and displays an attitude of concern, warmth, and hospitality to those they serve. The Island Spirit Committee is looking for nominees who most often have direct contact with customers and visitors to the island. Past recipients have been waiters, waitresses, service station attendants, bank tellers, receptionists, police officers, grocery clerks, etc.
Any individual working in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Fort Morgan, and Ono Island qualify. Recipients cannot benefit financially for their actions and are not usually owners or persons in high levels of management.
The Island Spirit Award includes the placement of the recipient’s name on a rotation plaque, a cash award, an article with a picture in our local newspaper, a custom made “Island Spirit” pin, and of course the appreciation of all who love this island paradise.
