DEBERT - Longtime Cape Chignecto Provincial park employee Maureen Mills was given a SuperHost award at the Central Nova Tourist Associations annual awards banquet last weekend.

Following is the citation presented to Mills during the ceremony:

Employed with Cape Chignecto Provincial Park for 11 years and counting, this recipient has made the park more than just a job, but a part of who she is. Working on the trails, having opportunities for monitoring the environment, and keeping a watchful eye on the birds, flora and fauna of the park were all part of what Maureen enjoyed. Her work in the back-country of the park during her first nine years, building trails and ensuring the wilderness experience offered was genuine and safe, she set a benchmark for perfection that all staff now work to attain when working on the parks trail system.

With her wealth of knowledge of the parks wilderness and trails the transition to being a front-country staff person was a natural occurrence from a customer service perspective.

As a member of the front country interpretive staff, Maureen is second to none. Super Host training has been a wonderful complement to her already out-going personality. Through Super Host courses she developed skills focused on the importance of the value of a welcoming smile as well as identifying opportunities to go that little bit further or give that little bit extra.

Two visitors to the park will always remember her for providing that little bit extra. They had arrived with camping gear, but no provisions to stay overnight. Without the blink of an eye, Maureen gave the visitors her lunch as well as a few staples that were kept in the visitor centre. This enabled them to stay over and experience the wonders of the park.

And Maureen does not limit herself to promoting Cape Chignecto. She is an excellent ambassador to Advocate Harbour, the Bay of Fundy Shore areas and Nova Scotia as a whole.

The Central Nova Tourist Association is pleased to bestow a CNTA SuperHost Award to Maureen Mills of Cape Chignecto Park.
