Congratulations to Lisa Knowlton who was presented with the 2019 Pam Todd Attitude Award. The inscription on her certificate reads: "Throughout Pam's employment with the Credit Union, she displayed a love for her job, her co-workers and members. Pam's smile could light up a room and she made the Credit Union a better place with her positive attitude. For more than 26 years, Lisa has also demonstrated these qualities. Lisa starts each day with a smile and goes out of her way to help members and co-workers in any way that she can. Lisa has an amazing work ethic and gives her all to the Credit Union each and every day. Members and co-workers truly enjoy working with Lisa. Pam's memory will live on through Lisa's dedication and love for the Credit Union.” On September 23rd, there will be a presentation of a donation to the Richard E. Winter Cancer Center in honor of Pam. In this picture are Todd Mashaw, President/CEO of St. Lawrence FCU; Lisa; and Jean Clouse, HR Manager at the Credit Union.
