LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  Lois Conklin upon the occasion of her
designation for special recognition  by  the  Albany  County  Historical
Association on December 6, 2012

WHEREAS,  Individuals  who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS, Lois Conklin has given not only of her time and energies  but
also of her competence, intelligence and leadership and consequently has
been designated for special honor; and
  WHEREAS,  This  Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Lois Conklin
upon the occasion of her designation  for  special  recognition  by  the
Albany  County  Historical Association (ACHA), celebrated at its Holiday
House Champagne Preview Party on Thursday, December 6, 2012; and
  WHEREAS, Celebrating its 70th year of existence,  ACHA  maintains  the
Ten  Broeck  Mansion,  as  well as its gardens and collections, standing
behind its mission to preserve, present and promote the rich and diverse
history and culture of Albany County; and
  WHEREAS, Lois Conklin has been called upon to contribute her time  and
talents to countless civic and charitable endeavors and has always given
of herself unstintingly; and
  WHEREAS, Lois Conklin has been involved with the Albany County Histor-
ical  Association for almost 30 years; she had originally been appointed
to the Board of Trustees and remained on the  Board  until  she  stepped
down in June of 2012, serving in the capacity of 2nd Vice President; and
  WHEREAS, She has been involved in every aspect of the organization and
is  responsible  for  much  of  the current appearance of the Ten Broeck
Mansion; as a member of the Collections Committee she  was  instrumental
in  selecting  the carpeting and window treatments and has been involved
in many of the refurbishment and preservation  projects  throughout  the
Mansion; and
  WHEREAS, Lois Conklin's innovative programming ideas and her execution
kept  much  needed  revenue  flowing  in  and  supported the educational
programming of the ACHA; this remarkable woman, who is  always  positive
and  is  beloved by the entire organization, is a lady who can truly get
things done; and
  WHEREAS, Throughout the entire period  of  her  community  service,  a
period  of  constructive involvement, Lois Conklin has stood constant in
dignity, good grace and humor; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual for the benefit of others which Lois Conklin has displayed  through-
out her life; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown  a
long  and  sustained  commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Lois  Conklin  upon  the  occasion of her designation for special
recognition by the Albany County Historical Association on  December  6,
2012; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Lois Conklin.
