(J.R.H. 199)

Offered by: Representative Barbieri of Wallingford.

Whereas, although Art Beauregard was a native of Wallingford, he truly left a wonderful impression and memories on the residents of his adopted hometown of Mt. Tabor, and

Whereas, little Mt. Tabor is a small town of only 242 souls, spectacularly nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains aside its namesake peak, and

Whereas, in a community with such a tiny population, finding competent and willing individuals to serve in municipal positions is often a daunting and thankless task, and

Whereas, Art Beauregard was a special person whose four decades of outstanding municipal public service in the town were a treasured gift to Mt. Tabor, and

Whereas, during the many decades that he faithfully labored on behalf of the citizens in his community, Art Beauregard served in many important town offices including selectboard member, lister, constable, collector of delinquent taxes, union school board director, justice of the peace and fire warden, and

Whereas, the diversity of positions to which his fellow citizens entrusted him in the fields of town administration, public safety, fire prevention, tax collection and education are evidence of the high regard and esteem in which Art Beauregard was held in Mt. Tabor, and

Whereas, aside from his many elected offices, he was greatly interested in the past history and present well being of his community as demonstrated by his active participation in both the Danby-Mt. Tabor Historical Society and the Danby-Mt. Tabor Fire Company and Fire District, and

Whereas, Art Beauregard was a proud veteran of World War II and the Korean War, and

Whereas, he was the devoted husband of Ida, who proudly continues the family tradition of public service as the Mt. Tabor Town Clerk, the father of Sara, Debbie and Bill and the doting grandfather of six wonderful grandchildren, and

Whereas, his quiet personality and astute observations will be deeply missed by his family and many friends, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly extends its sincere condolences to the family of Arthur James Beauregard, and be it further

Resolved: That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Ida Beauregard at the Mt. Tabor Town Hall.
