District of Sooke employees got some recognition recently for their years of service.

Recipients were given a framed certificate, a presentation pin or similar item, a gift to a value of $150 and an engraved plaque.

The year of service awards are provided every five years. The years of service don’t need to be continuous to qualify, according to the District’s employee service awards policy.

Those receiving a framed certificate for five years of service were Richard McLeod, Elisabeth Nelson, Sarah Temple, Christopher McCrea, Cameron Norris-Jones, Brad Metzger and Michael Dillabaugh.

Employees who have reached or exceeded 10 years of dedicated service received a certificate along with a 10 Years of Service Pin. They included Nikki Lewers, Matthew Barney and Deborah Knight.

Employees who reached or exceeded 15 years of service: Steve Sorensen, Susan Dyble and Bonnie Sprinkling.
