Parade Honors Brooklyn Center Employee, Retiring after 37 Years on the Job
This isn’t exactly the retirement party Brooklyn Brooklyn Center Human Resource Specialist Patti Page was envisioning.
“I was thinking about the retirement party that one of my close friends had the end of February where all the co-workers and past co-workers came and got hugs and talked about old times. But, this is good. This is fun too,” said Page
The parade route passed by Brooklyn Center City Hall and wound around the community center campus.
“I actually started at Brooklyn Center when I was in high school through the office education program. And I worked here after school through the school year. Then after that I was hired on full time. I left for a while to go to vocational school and then I ended up coming back. And here I am,” said Page.
Patti Page is in human resources now, but she’s also served as a receptionist, worked in community development, and had a hand in the redevelopment of the Earle Brown Heritage Center.
“You served this organization, all of its employees extremely well. We thank you so very much. You’re gonna be missed,” said Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey.
“When I first started here though in high school, I always tell this story. There was a woman in finance that was celebrating 25 years. And this little 17 year old, I thinking who could work somewhere 25 years? And now it’s 37 and a half,” said Patti Page
