We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 4th Quarter “Make A Difference” Award are ... Steve Elliott and Teresa (Teri) Lynch!

Steve and Teresa are Desk Attendants at the Community Center. They were nominated by Cricket Elden. Here is what Cricket had to say . . .

“My sons are home from college for about 3 ½ weeks for Christmas break. We purchased a 30 day pass/membership for each of them today. We just wanted to tell you what awesome customer service we received! Both Steve and Teri were very helpful and friendly. There were some internet issues or something so we had to go to the pool area to finish the purchase. Steve called ahead so Teri was expecting us and then he stayed on the phone with her to be sure everything went through for us. This is a crazy busy time of the year with the holidays but your employees were so calm and friendly and they went out of their way to help us get what we needed taken care of. Thank you for creating such a positive environment and friendly place!”

Steve was also nominated by Ilene Hamer. . . “When us girls come in to walk he is always friendly and courteous to us and always wishes us a good day.”

Above and Beyond

Geneseo Park District Above & Beyond Award Winner

The Above & Beyond Award Program is a Peer-to-Peer recognition award give to one employee quarterly. An employee can be recognized by a co-worker for their outstanding performance.


We are pleased to announce the Recipient of the 4th Quarter “Above and Beyond” Award is . . . Tara Koustas!

Tara is a Gymnastics Instructor at the Community Center. Tara was nominated by Chris and Larry Ward. Here is what Chris and Larry had to say . . .

“Tara inscribes adjectives on our hearts each day. These adjectives are: loyalty, integrity, honesty, intelligence, kindness, creativity, thoughtfulness, dedication, sincerity, determination and persistence. She inspires all of us to be better gymnastics teachers, more honorable people and goes above and beyond as a gymnastic competitive coach.

Tara created games and activities such as “Build a Snowman” or “Golf Relay”. She spends her own money picking up any items that will help us such as a roller for the high schools gymnast’s feet or hula-hoops or “Elf” snow balls. Tara is an excellent spotter and has spotted giants on the high bar, or flic-flacs on beam. She has a great eye for seeing mistakes and the knowledge to communicate corrections.

She is the first to know when someone needs something and fulfills that need. It doesn’t matter whether the need is a piece of chocolate, a bag of snacks for away meets, or a word of sincere encouragement. Tara’s got it and adds a smile! Her positivity shines to all of us on a daily basis. Our gymnastics program from preschool through high school has been blessed by Tara as a teacher, coordinator and coach. She influences and works well with each age and each individual student.

She gets along with all staff members in such a professional and wonderful way. She can be tough and honest. She can be kind and gentle. Tara gives 150% to every task she achieves. She implemented the Geneseo Gymnastics Boosters with other high school parents to add to our success. She is a problem solver, takes responsibility to solve difficult problems and believes in teamwork.

She deserves the “Above and Beyond Award”! She deserves the recognition, but will be the first to show humility,service and respect if honored."
