Leetown has grown, but still some of the old residents are here and we are thankful for their help, Mr. Charley Lowery, Shepherdstown, spent the weekend with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Blue. The club will meet January 30, at the Leetown U.M. Church. The same night there will be an Administrative Board meeting at the church. Mrs. M. H. Wilson, Charles Town,was a recent visitor with ministrator of the facility. This selection culminates a program which was started in December J 1976, designed to recognize ef- fective and superior per- formance by employees throughout the year. The program involves the selection of an "Employee of the Month" during the year with a final selection made from theorist of: those who achieved this recognition to he named as employee of the year. Mr. Hecker pointed out that the process of determination which resulted in Mrs. Frazier's selection, was very detailed and thorough. Employees were given the opportunity of nominating an employee for this honer in a secret ballot. The results of the ballot were then weighed and integrated with the recommendations of super- visory personnel; personnel performance; evaluation ratings; the results of state inspections as they reflected thus food preparation takes on a special significance and probably is the singularly most important item in the spectrum of the Nursing Home schedule" the Administration further stated. "But most important, the particular care and concern Mrs. Frazier shows for each residents particular dietary needs adds a special dimension to resident care and to this end Mrs. Frazier makes a con- tribution not always measured I in tangibles", Mr. Hecker stated. Mrs. Frazier will be presented with an enlarged framed copy of MRS. HALLIE FRAZIER performance in particular nursing home services; the recommendations of the direction of nurses and the overall view of the Ad- ministrator. "The final decision of course", Mr. Hecker stated, "is in the preview of the Ad- ministrator and the competition was indeed keen and spirited". "Yet, Mrs. Frazier emerges as a well deserved and popular choice for the results of her competence and dedicated at- tention to her duties benefits both the resident and employee population". Mrs. Frazier has been em- ployed as a cook at Jeffersonian Manor since November 1965. During her employment, her expertise in the art of Geriatric Food Preparation has been a source of great pride and has contributed substantially to the health, morale and well being of the residents as well as the staff, all of whom are served the meal which occurs during their shift. "The highlight of the day for many residents are the meals, this news release plus a Savings Bond at a ceremony at the emph)yees monthly conference during February.
