EAwardsLogoIt’s E Awards time again at West Wind Island Resort.

For those readers who don’t know about E Awards, here’s brief description:

For many years, Elaine McLaughlin was the Executive Director of the Lee County Visitor and Convention Bureau. That’s the organization charged with providing an exceptional experiences for people who visit Sanibel Island and other Lee County destinations. When Elaine retired, the Lee VCB created an award in her name to honor Lee County hospitality workers who go out of their way to care for visitors to the county. The list of eligible recipients includes lodging employees and anyone else who meets, greets and treats visitors in a caring and helpful manner.

Potential winners are nominated by visitors, like you, who want to recognize anyone to fulfills that standard. Winners are announced and celebrated at breakfast in September. It is a very big honor. It can lead to raises and promotions for the winners and is promoted by by the properties that employ them.

Cutting to the summary, if you were served well and above your expectations by anyone at Sanibel’s West Wind Island Resort beach resort – front office greeters, maids and cleaning people, maintenance workers, servers at Normandie Pub or at the Pool Deck kiosk and snack bar, anyone, please take a few minutes to send the VCB a nomination form for that person. There is no limit to the number of people you can nominated or the number of events you can nominate them for. Simply go to the this online address to complete and email a form,

It’s a great way to recognize those who serve you (and it really does motivate them to keep up the good work.)

Thank you.
