Last Monday was Ralph’s birthday. Ralph is the guy who makes the club run. He has a sense of knowing something is not working long before anyone else would notice. He has a rare dedication to his job and often will work at 4am simply so the members are not inconvenienced by his work. Previous maintenance workers would drain hot tubs in the middle of the day because that was a convenient time for the worker, not so much for the member. Ralph, on the other hand, thinks of the members first and it does not go unnoticed.
That is why on Monday, when Ralph had a milestone birthday, members organized a parking lot surprise party for him. He is not much of an attention seeker and thus, was a little embarrassed but within minutes settled in and enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces.
Thank you Tori Meredith for organizing this event and it reminded me, once again, why I love our Montecito family. Our members are wonderful and so kind to our staff. We are all anxious to get back together again and until then, be well my friends.
