The 18th Century English author Joseph Addison once wrote, “There is not a more pleasing exercise of the mind than gratitude. It is accompanied with such an inward satisfaction that the duty is sufficiently rewarded by the performance.”
As we approach the holiday season, it is time for us to show our appreciation and gratitude to the Kendal staff who have served us so well this past year.
Twice a year, in November and May, we have the opportunity to give thanks to the staff members who have made our lives better and more pleasurable. At Kendal, as you know, there is no tipping. Instead we ask you to contribute to the Staff Appreciation Fund, the contents of which will be shared with the staff at a holiday party based on the number of hours each has worked during the last six months.
In order to contribute:
*Beginning Nov. 1, place your check for $175 ($350 for a couple) in a special box at the front desk in the Mary Powell Building.
* Gifts in larger amounts are gratefully welcomed and accepted.
The Staff Appreciation Fund is the easiest and most efficient way for us to say “Thank you” to the Staff for all that they have done and are doing for us on a daily basis.
Please write your check today for as much as you can. Make it payable to KOH Residents Association and put Staff Appreciation Fund in the memo line. As Addison said, you will receive a great “inward satisfaction” by thanking the wonderful people who make up the Kendal staff.
