Amy (Brookover) Lees
Ever wonder who shops for all those birthday cards? Who addresses and stamps them? How to they get signed by so many classmates and mailed on time? Well the answer is Amy Haar. Amy has been a member of the class reunion committee since it formed back in 1975 for the first reunion. About ten years ago she took on the task of buying, addressing, getting the birthday cards signed and mailed. As the class database of names with addresses has grown this task has grown as well. When asked about the job she replied "I love to send cards for several reasons:
1. They are PAPER, which I love.
2. You write on them with pen and ink.
3. You place pretty stamps on them, then a trip to the post office to mail--FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
It's NOT typing at a computer screen and hitting the Send-Button--how boring!! Furthermore the recipients seem to appreciate and enjoy them immensel--usually don't get the same response on email."
Amy never misses a class breakfast or lunch and always has a bag full of birthday cards to pass around for signing. Which explains the occasional egg yolk or BBQ sauce on an envelope or card. Sometimes, we get a thank you note back from a totally surprised classmate for receiving a birthday card with so many signatures. IT'S ALL THANKS TO AMY'S DILIGENT EFFORTS.
Amy has worked at Lakeland Police Department since 1974 as an Administrative Assistant to four Police Chiefs over a 21 year period and has been their Court Liason for the past 22 years. She has one terrific daughter, Lauren, whom she is very proud of. There is never a dull moment around Amy as she always has a hilarous story to tell about "Being Amy!"
On behalf of all your classmates - Thanks Amy for all the time and effort you put into this task every month.
