Congratulations to North Delta's 100 Acre Wood Family Day Care, who won the 4th Annual Delta Rotary Business Ethics Award on Friday evening.

Tanya Marsh of the award-winning 100 Acre Wood Family Day Care said the ethical practice in her business translates into inclusion. "Everybody is welcome," she said, "From varying cultures, different abilities, special needs, and low income families."
Marsh says, “Because I have the opportunity to work with children at an early developmental stage in their lives, I promote many important skills that include caring and respect for others, fairness, honesty, healthy lifestyle, awareness and respect for nature and the environment. Long term I hope to produce people who, in the future, embrace these positive behaviours and values.”
Comments by Marsh and other finalists can be heard here.
Said award program leader Leslie Abramson, "Tanya’s company and the other finalists all have a clear understanding that ethics are good for business. Being first in business is not just about being the fastest and most powerful at any cost; it’s also about focus on the community, giving back, and service. Rotary International puts ‘service above self’ at the centre of all its activities around the world among our 1.2 million members and 35,000 clubs, and these finalists represent the meaning behind the ‘Four-Way Test’ of truth, integrity and goodwill in the way we provide that service.”
