Farewell to Sylvia as She Retires After 17 Years of Service

Farewell to Sylvia as She Retires After 17 Years of Service

There will be less of a background hum in the Sewing Department at Hercules Dartmouth after tomorrow, as we bid farewell to a long serving, much valued employee Sylvia Marchand as she embarks on her well-earned retirement.

By the end of Friday, Sylvia will have worked at Hercules for 17 years, 4 months and one week. dedicated, hardworking, a true team player and highly regarded, she will be sorely missed; none more so than by friend and colleague Nevenka Kosanic.  Sylvia and Nevenka have sewed synthetic slings side by side in the department for 12 years, between the two of them they make a truly dynamic duo!

Sylvia and Nevenka

It has been known that as well as sewing slings, Sylvia has helped numerous employees with the fixing of pants and various other garments ripped in the line of duty, which comes in handy when it comes to avoiding the odd embarrassment at work!

This morning everyone came together at the weekly meeting to say farewell and wish Sylvia well for the future. Hercules President Chris Giannou and Branch Manager John Shillington presented her with a plaque and collection in honour of her time with the company.

Sylvia, huge thanks once again from everyone here at Dartmouth, for your friendship and tireless work ethic! We salute you. It’s now time to kick back and relax…You have earned it!
