WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to honor those busi-
nesses within the State of New York which distinguish themselves through
outstanding professional behavior and enduring commitment to the commu-

na in 1919, recently took over as general manager at the century-old
store in the heart of downtown Croghan; and
WHEREAS, Blaine Campany is buying the business from her parents, plant
owners John M. and Charmaine V. Campany; the move comes at a historic
time for the Lewis County favorite as 2013 is also the market's 125th

port, where she majored in recreation leisure with an emphasis in tour-
ism management, as well as receiving her minor in business management;
WHEREAS, In a typical week, Croghan Meat Market produces 3,000 one-
pound rings of bologna, doubling output just before Thanksgiving through
New Year's Day; fresh bologna is made Mondays and Thursdays along with
fresh local cheese curd; and
WHEREAS, Businesses such as Croghan Meat Market exert a strong, posi-
tive influence on the communities they serve and are a crucial element
in the economy of New York State; and
WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body acknowl-
edges the successes of Croghan Meat Market, recognizing its contrib-
utions to the local and State economies, and extending its highest
commendation to the business and its employees, fully confident that it
will continue to enjoy the sparkling successes it has experienced thus
far; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 125th Anniversary of Croghan Meat Market; and be it
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Blaine E. Campany.
