LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  Joseph Provoncha upon the occasion of
receiving the 2014 Liberty Bell Award from the Essex County Bar  Associ-
ation

WHEREAS, The quality and character of life in this Nation, and the great
State of New York, are reflective of the purposeful lives and good works
of those patriotic and civic-minded community members who dedicate their
lives and careers to the service of others; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body  is  justly  proud  to  honor
Joseph  Provoncha  upon  the occasion of receiving the 2014 Liberty Bell
Award from the Essex County Bar Association, celebrated on Thursday, May
1, 2014, at the Deer's Head Restaurant in Elizabethtown, New York; and
  WHEREAS, The Liberty Bell Award is bestowed by local bar  associations
in  conjunction  with  Law  Day to honor outstanding citizens within the
local community; the award recognizes outstanding service performed by a
non-lawyer citizen who has given of themselves to strengthen the  effec-
tiveness  of  the  American system of freedom under law, in keeping with
the spirit of the Constitution; and
  WHEREAS, Such service may include activities which  promote  a  better
understanding  of  America's  form of government, especially the Bill of
Rights; encourage greater respect for the law  in  the  courts;  educate
people in the contrast between totalitarianism and freedom under law; or
stimulate  the deeper sense of individual responsibility to the end that
citizens recognize their duties as well as their rights; and
  WHEREAS, Joseph Provoncha has been called upon to contribute his  time
and  talents  to countless civic and charitable endeavors and has always
given of himself unstintingly; and
  WHEREAS, An exemplary leader, Joseph Provoncha has served admirably in
the position of County Clerk; he is receiving this prestigious award for
his outstanding public service; and
  WHEREAS, In addition, Joseph Provoncha has  served  with  the  retired
Seniors  Volunteer  Program,  the local 4-H Board, the Arts Council, the
Substance Abuse Prevention Team, and he is  also  the  Chaplain  of  the
North Hudson Fire Company; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual  for  the  benefit of others which this remarkable man has displayed
throughout his life; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that  when  individ-
uals  of  such  noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Joseph Provoncha upon the occasion of receiving the  2014  Liberty
Bell Award from the Essex County Bar Association; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Joseph Provoncha.
