Julie Brewer, recreation special programs and marketing manager for the Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Department, recently was honored as the City's Employee of the Year for 2009.

She accepted the award from Mayor Pete Lewis at a ceremony last week.

Brewer is responsible for all of the marketing and special events for the department, including such events as KidsDay, Petpalooza, Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Santa Parade, arts programs and recreation activities.

Most recently, Brewer assisted with the fundraising for the soon-to-be-completed Barrier-Free Playground at Les Gove Park.

One supervisor offered praise: “She is intensely motivated, creative, independent and innovative. If attitude makes a difference between getting tasks done and making them fun, then she is the epitome of what a great attitude can do in helping a department forward its mission.”
