Alexa Stanton receives 2010 Service Recognition Award
Cooperstown, NY - The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard awarded their 2010 Service Recognition Award to team member Alexa (Lucky) Stanton of New Berlin at the annual Team Recognition Banquet held at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown. Some 70 team members and guests enjoyed a delicious Cider Mill-themed menu created by Executive Chef Michael Gregory and sponsored in-part by Maines Foodservice. They celebrated a successful 154th season and recognized one another with individual, often humorous, memories of the year.
The evening highlight was the award presentation to Stanton. The annual award recognizes a team member’s dedication to the Michaels family and fellow team members and making the Mill a fun place to work. Lucky was nominated by team leaders and past award winners for her superior workplace attitude and cooperative spirit. “Lucky stepped up to the plate this season in the Snack Barn and Bakery and in creatively crafting our holiday gift basket orders. She even volunteered to coordinate and implement our donation to Glimmerglass Park’s Festival of Trees,” said Lin Molloy, the Mill’s Personnel and Inventory Leader.
The Fly Creek Cider Mill, located just 3 miles from Cooperstown and 24 miles south of Herkimer, is open daily 9 – 6 through December 19. Wassailing Weekends and Custom Gift Basketing will round out this year’s events. The Mill will re-open for its 155th season on April 1, 2011 however, their On-Line Store is open all year.
