LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  Brown's Pharmacy upon the occasion of
its designation as recipient of the 2013 Business of the Year Award from
the Unadilla Chamber of Commerce

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to take  note  of  and
publicly  recognize  those businesses within the State of New York which
have positively influenced their communities; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Brown's Pharmacy upon the occasion of its designation  as  recipient  of
the  2013  Business  of  the  Year  Award  from  the Unadilla Chamber of
Commerce on Sunday, April 21, 2013, in Unadilla, New York; and
  WHEREAS, It was in 1956 that Lew Sturgess and his wife Ellen moved  to
Unadilla  and  bought  the  business from Bob Kinch; when Lew retired in
1995, the business was passed down to his daughter, Kelley Spencer; and
  WHEREAS, Chris Brown began working with  Kelley  in  October  of  2003
becoming  acquainted with many of the local customers; a month later, he
purchased the business and the name was changed to Brown's  Pharmacy  in
September of 2004; and
  WHEREAS,  A 1990 graduate of Tupper Lake High School, Chris Brown then
went on to Albany College of Pharmacy, graduating  in  1995;  his  early
jobs were with Fay's and Tops pharmacies in Norwich; and
  WHEREAS,  For  a  while,  Chris Brown served as a pharmacy director at
Chenango Memorial Hospital, but later decided he wanted to get back into
retail and help his community with its pharmaceutical needs;  while  the
business  along  with  its  personal service is ongoing, Chris Brown has
seen changes in technology and strives to keep  updating  the  business;
and
  WHEREAS,  While the pharmacy business keeps Chris Brown busy, he still
finds time to serve on the executive board of Family Planning  of  South
Central  New  York and on the regional advisory board of Cardinal Health
National Wholesaler; he also has been involved with the Relay  for  Life
in Chenango County for many years; and
  WHEREAS,  With  him  throughout  have  been his wife, Dianna and their
children Chelsea, Gabe and Macauley, all of whom feel privileged to be a
part of his life and rejoice in his achievements; and
  WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body commends
Brown's Pharmacy for its excellence and for its commitment and  contrib-
utions to the community it has so ably served; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Brown's Pharmacy upon the occasion of its designation as recipient
of the 2013 Business of the Year Award  from  the  Unadilla  Chamber  of
Commerce; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Chris Brown, the owner of Brown's Pharmacy.
