WHEREAS, From time to time this Legislative Body takes note of certain
extraordinary individuals it wishes to recognize for their valued
contributions to the success and progress of society and publicly
acknowledge their endeavors which have enhanced the basic humanity among
us all; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Aline and Henry Euler upon the occasion of their designation for special
recognition by the Poppenhusen Institute, to be celebrated at its Spring

WHEREAS, Aline Euler takes on many roles at the Alley Pond Environ-
mental Center in Douglaston, Queens, where she has worked for over 30
years; she is a teacher, a grant writer, a conductor of teacher work-
shops, and a developer of curriculum and programs used by the education
staff at the Center; and
WHEREAS, It gives Aline Euler great joy to teach youngsters and adults
about the natural environment and how important it is to treat our plan-
et with care and respect; before her tenure at the Center, she was an
elementary school teacher for many years in the West Islip public
schools; and

a community advocate and is the First Vice President of the Auburndale
Improvement Association, a member of Community Board 11, and is the
recording secretary for both the Bayside Historical Society and the Olde
Towne of Flushing Burial Ground Conservancy; and
WHEREAS, Henry Euler advocates for community preservation as well as
environmental protection and writes many letters to the editors of the
local newspapers; the Eulers are proud to be life members of the Poppen-
husen Institute and are happy to lend their support to the wonderful
community organization; and
WHEREAS, Aline and Henry Euler have supported the Institute for over
10 years by way of the Euler-Revaz Foundation; and
WHEREAS, True assets to society, Aline and Henry Euler's distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Aline and Henry Euler upon the occasion of their designation for
special recognition by the Poppenhusen Institute; and be it further
