Town of Woodbridge custodian William Rosario received a Community Partnership Award from the Amity Girl Scouts at their Annual Recognition Dinner in late May.
The award recognizes Rosario’s “untiring attention to the needs and wishes of all the Girl Scouts in the community,” said Amity Girl Scout Service Unit Manager Vicky Burford. “We are always thankful of his friendly service and ever present smile.”
Rosario was surprised by the award. “I’ve seen kids grow up through day care to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts,” Rosario said. “I love helping the kids and the residents of Woodbridge. It’s my job—I don’t need an award but I’m humbled by it.”
In April, Rosario was also thanked and recognized in a letter from Bob Tucker, the former scout master of Boy Scout Troop 63, for Rosario’s help with the Troop 63 Court of Honor event. “We owe a great debt of gratitude to William, who went above and beyond the call of duty to help us accommodate more people than we had anticipated. William has always been such a huge help.”
“William is always willing to go the extra mile to be helpful and kind to Town employees and residents,” said First Selectman Ellen Scalettar. “He is a wonderful example of the customer service-oriented employees in Woodbridge and he well deserves this award. ”
Rosario has worked for the Town of Woodbridge for 19 years and, in addition to keeping the buildings clean, he organizes and manages the set-up and break-down of most Town events, including meetings, special events and the summer concerts.
