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.
