Good Will Ambassadors Performing

UNSUNG HEROES

Random Acts of Kindness

Thank you letter for Frank Nash

The GCTC recognizes members who provide selfless
service to our community. The first time a member returns
an item, that individual receives a metal detecting pin
(handcrafted by Steve Hoskins) to wear on his or her hat, in
addition to a certificate of appreciation. Future returns are
recognized by additional certificates. Kudos to all club
members who go out of their way to return items to their
rightful owners. The actions of each of our “Ambassadors
of Goodwill” enhance the public’s perception of our hobby!
Way to go, gang!

“Frank Nash is a patient at our dental office. We remembered
he owned a metal detector and called him in a panic to ask for his
help to find a diamond bracelet. Jackie, the doctor's wife, thought
she may have lost it while walking the dog out in the yard outside
of the office. The bracelet is valued at about $10,000 and was not
insured so naturally Jackie was very upset about it. We had
looked throughout the yard ourselves but the grass was very thick
and it was difficult to see very much.
Frank came right over with his metal detector and within 15
minutes had found it. We were not outside with him while he was
looking for it and because he's the honest guy that he is he
brought it right into the office to show us. We were all thrilled,
especially Jackie and Dr. Steckler. We are so grateful to Frank
for responding so quickly to help us in our seemingly hopeless
situation. God bless him.” Katie Cicenia

Thank you letter for Jim Sharp
“I am writing this letter to thank Mr. Jim Sharp, the Security
and Custom Service Coordinator at the Breakers for magical
retrieval of my gold band on the morning of September 27, 2009.
My wife and I stayed at your first-class resort last week for the
American Thyroid Association meeting. Last Saturday evening,
we took a walk along the beautiful beach. However, when I tried
to wash sands off my left hand, my gold band suddenly slipped off
my ring finger. Before I knew it, the band was swept away by the
receding tides.
Next morning the ocean was quieter and the water level lower
as we figured. However, there was no sign of my band at all I
desperately looked around and saw a gentleman at distance
looking for "treasures" with a metal detector. I approached him
and hoped that he might be able to help. The gentleman was Jim
Sharp. a Breakers employee of the Security and Customer Service
Department as he friendly introduced, handing me his business
card. Mr. Sharp quickly went to the spot of interest and began the
daunting task of searching for an invisible tiny object. He assured
me that if he couldn't find it before my departure at 9:30 am, he
would chart the area for a larger scale search with more
manpower and mail me the band. Although 1 realized that it was
uncertain whether Jim could retrieve my band at all, his friendly
manner, confidence, and compassion greatly relieved my anxiety.
Magically, not long after I entered my room to pack. the phone
rang. Jim happily told me he found the band and asked me to meet
him in the lobby! I was, and still is, totally amazed how efficient
he was.
I highly commend Mr. Sharp's work ethics and outstanding
performance. My encounter with him greatly enhanced my
experience at the Breakers. I hope my letter will prompt your
recognition of Mr. Sharp's dedication and excellence. His
contribution to the Breakers made a great organization greater."
