(H.C.R.137)

Offered by:  Representative Fallar of Tinmouth.

Whereas, Ernest Boulé is one of Tinmouth’s most revered citizens, and

Whereas, he has assumed many positions of leadership in the community, and

Whereas, his first public service position was as constable during the 1930s, and

Whereas, having fulfilled his law enforcement duties most effectively, he was later entrusted by the voters with the important duty of assessing the town’s property when he was elected as lister, a post he held for five years, and

Whereas, most significantly, from 1975 to 1992, Ernest Boulé was a highly respected member of the Tinmouth Selectboard and served several terms as its distinguished chair, and

Whereas, he always scrutinized the spending of every penny so as to be frugal with his neighbors’ hard-earned money, and

Whereas, for many decades he and his wife Therese stayed true to Vermont’s agricultural heritage as they operated their family’s farm, and

Whereas, on Saturday, May 24, 2003, Ernest Boulé will celebrate his 93rd birthday, and

Whereas, his service on behalf of the town of Tinmouth has reflected the best traditions of Vermont’s citizen government, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly honors Ernest Boulé for his honorable and diligent devoted public service on behalf of the citizens of Tinmouth, and be it further

Resolved:  That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Ernest Boulé in Tinmouth.
