and  talents  to countless civic and charitable endeavors and has always
given of himself unstintingly; and

law enforcement officer in Washington County; and
  WHEREAS,  An  exemplary  leader,  Roger  Leclaire diligently worked to
protect the people of his community in his capacity as a County  Sheriff
for  16 years; furthermore, he has served his country as a member of the
United States Army Reserve, rising to the rank of Colonel; and
  WHEREAS, Throughout the entire period  of  his  community  service,  a
period of constructive involvement, Roger Leclaire 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  Roger  Leclaire has displayed
throughout his life; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
