Member Spotlight Stanley Klett, Jr. by Lynne Poirier Each month we spotlight a member for his or her extraordinary community service or interesting hobby outside legal work. This month, our Member Spotlight is on Stanley (Stan) Klett, Jr. Why Stan? Stan has a heart of gold. Anyone who knows Stan, knows him to be compassionate and caring with a soft spot for underprivileged children. Twenty-five years ago, Stan established our Holiday Party and Silent Auction. This event is a tradition that has grown from a mere 30 attendees to 300 and has raised nearly half a million dollars for local charity programs sponsored by our North County and Young Lawyers Sections. Although Stan served as President for the North County and was president of the Palm Beach County Bar Association in 2004, he continued to work diligently knocking on doors, making calls and writing letters collecting items and staying involved. Stan’s community service also included serving on the board and raising funds and awareness for Lighthouse for the Blind and Friends of Foster Children. For many years, Stan and his dad, Stan Sr. collected new and used children’s bicycles and on weekends the two worked hard with other gracious volunteers to repair or refurbish the used bicycles to nearly new. Stan graduated from the University of Florida in 1984 and works for Jones Foster, P.A. He is married to Alicia and a proud father of two children, Foster and Scotti. Stan thank you for truly making a difference in the loves of so many deserving people over the years. Happy New Year!
