YOU’VE BEEN SERVED C o r n e r YBS- Public Awareness of Attorney Volunteerism... JESSICA CALLOW T he PBCBA launched an educational campaign called “You’ve Been Served!” One purpose of the campaign is to encourage volunteerism and reward our members who have had the greatest impact on our community. As such, it is with great honor that the PBCBA recognizes member and Past-President, Stanley “Stan” Klett, Jr., as the first recipient of the You’ve Been Served! Award. Stan, a business litigation attorney with the firm Klett, Mesches & Johnson, P.L., provides exemplary service to our community. Many PBCBA members know Stan as the founder of our bar’s Holiday Party and silent auction held every December. Kicked off in 1994, the event raises thousands of dollars for abused and neglected children. Stan continues to work tirelessly to gather donations for the silent auction. With his father, Stan also started a holiday party in 1994 that has provided gifts to thousands of abused and neglected children and young adults in Palm Beach County. The holiday party served over 400 children in 2016 alone. Additionally, Stan is a past Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation he served on from 1994-2014. Stan also served on the Board of Directors for the Friends of Abused Children, which is now known as Friends of Foster Children of Palm Beach County, from 2005-2017. Stan will be recognized for his service at the PBCBA’s Membership Luncheon on October 3, 2017. Please join us in commending Stan for his service.
