Tina Ketchopolos Responds To Her Best GMG PR Person Of The Year Award

Dear Joey:

I want you to know how honored I am to be selected PR Person of the Year!

You know that GMG is my favorite blog – it is not only entertaining, but informative and educational! I appreciate the many health programs and screenings you post for us.

I feel like I have the best job in City.  I work at a wonderful hospital with amazing employees.  On Friday,

Cindy Cafasso Donaldson and her assistant, Deb Sacco, who I enjoy working with so much, told me to check GMG and that is when I saw the announcement.  What a way to begin your day! 

The co-workers I work with are incredible.  We have excellent doctors, nurses and support staff.

They are skilled and professional – but in addition, they are compassionate and caring and this is equally

important.  I feel honored to call these individuals my co-workers and  friends.  I wish I could name every department and

every employee as they deserve recognition as well.  Addison Gilbert Hospital is striving because of their good care and work.

So it is always a pleasure to share with you programming that our staff are conducting.

My job also allows me to work with so many agencies and other non-profits within the City – I have met so many wonderful people at meetings and working on projects together – this is one of the highlights of my job.

My boss Gerald MacKillop is from Gloucester and of course I told him I was bringing you to my next review!  I told him that when he called to congratulate me.

Please know that you made my day by your kindness and this wonderful honor; I am extremely grateful.

I have to go now, I have about four more notices to send you!

Gratefully and in friendship,

Tina

My 2013 Gloucester Community Person Of The Year- Melissa Cox

I’ve never done a Gloucester Community Person of The Year Award  but I got to thinking and this year it just was so obvious who I would pick for the title because after being around her (and her awesome husband Bill) and seeing how much she gives of herself to our community, to me it wasn’t even up for debate.

Melissa it seems is at every single community event and is always volunteering her time and work to make Gloucester a better place.  There are people that show up for ribbon cutting ceremonies, get their picture taken and then take off.  Melissa is the one who generally was there on the ground floor of whatever people were there to celebrate by getting her hands dirty and making things happen.  Always with a smile always with a laugh.

Not talking just about her work as a City Councilor which during her young tenure has shown a great desire to do what’s right for the City not based on political vendettas, but truly based on what she thinks are the right things to do.  She is responsive and effective in making things happen for her constituents and the city as a whole.

But politics is my least favorite thing so what I’d rather point out is how she’s always there at events lending a hand or at The Burnham’s Field Community Garden clearing plots and organizing meetings, and honestly it seems like every single event we cover here on GMG Melissa is there, supporting or participating to make our City better.

Melissa, thank you so much for all you do to make Gloucester even better than the place it already is.

We love you (and Bill too) Smile
