Retiring employee honoured for 43 years' service
A man who has given most of his life serving Isaac communities has retired after 43 years of service.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker and CEO Gary Stevenson PSM paid tribute to Ray Scharf during an intimate gathering in Clermont recently.
Working as a labourer and handy man, Mr Scharf said helping build Isaac through his work in construction and repair is among his proudest moments in his Council career.
“Being part of moving the region forward and seeing all the buildings and facilities that I have helped build and maintain is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life,” Mr Scharf said.
“I chose to work for Council because they supported me with my hearing impairment.
“It is a great benefit to work for an organisation that supports you in both the good and hard times.”
Mr Stevenson shared sentiments about the value that long serving employees offer to Council.
“We couldn’t strive to achieve our vision, mission and values without amazing employees like Ray,” he said.
“We wish Ray all the best in his next chapter, we will miss his loyalty and dedication over the years.”
Council offers a range of career and employment opportunities for school leavers, professionals, tradespeople at family friendly locations throughout the region.
