APT Wishes Debbie Gary a Happy Birthday with Thanks

APT celebrated longtime employee Debbie Gary’s birthday on February 1st, 2019 as a special thank you as she transitioned to part time after 13 years of service.  As usual, the APT team made it a party at the Campo di Bocce of Los Gatos.  We reserved the indoor bocce ball court, which was a good thing due to the inclement weather.  After lots of good food and drink, we finished with cupcakes – which were worth the wait.

As has become almost a tradition at these parties, director Marion Radford composed an original poem for Debbie:

As You Begin Your Journey

We met 31 years ago when our children were just little babies…

A room full of little ones and the moms were frazzled ladies!

Then 19 years later I said I was ready for a change…

you said APT is hiring! I’ll see what I can arrange.

With a good word from you I met Andy & Rich…

And the rest is history, I think I found my niche!

We have worked together for over 9 years…

sharing in laughter and sometimes in tears.

We’ve seen people come and we’ve seen people go…

rejoicing in high times and enduring the low.

Thru all these years our friendship prevailed…

as our kids finished school and thru college then sailed.

Here at APT you’ve been such a valuable asset…

the knowledge you’ve imparted we won’t soon forget.

You’ve shared your wisdom with everyone around…

for customers you ensured their decisions were sound.

We always know that we can count on you…

always organized and in charge of all that you do.

You’ve spent hours on the phone talking meters and such…

getting quotes out the door, with your magic touch.

Our customers love you and think you’re the best…

after all that hard work, you’re deserving of a rest!

You’ve helped us to get to where we are on this day…

as we gather together to wish you on your way.

The day has finally come when you hang up your hat…

and for us no more visits and no more late-night chats.

As you start this next chapter we will all wish you well…

as you no longer contemplate which meters to sell.

Ahead lies the days you’ve worked hard to reach…

of adventures abroad, leisurely days on the beach.

Days at home with your hubby & more time with the boys…

in all of life’s adventures, there’s no greater joy…

And a word from us all gathered on this day…

we love you and will miss you as you go on your way.

Thank you for everything and our wishes are sincere…

as we thank you for giving us the last 13 years.
