HONORING Gregory Barulich upon the occasion of his
designation for special recognition by the New York
State Office for the Aging on May 21, 2019

WHEREAS, Senior citizens bring a wealth of experience and knowledge
to the increasingly active roles they play in today's society; their
past contributions and future participation are a vital part of, and
valuable asset to, the fabric of community life and activity; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Gregory
Barulich upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition by
the New York State Office for the Aging at its Annual Older New Yorkers'

The Egg, Albany, New York; and

WHEREAS, Each May, the New York State Office for the Aging pauses to
acknowledge the outstanding contributions made by older citizens during
National Older Americans Month; and

WHEREAS, Members of older generations have helped build and shape
our Nation to be the greatest in the world; they have defended our
freedoms and values to ensure that those who come after them may have
better lives; nowhere in the Nation is the legacy of their efforts more
visible and more a part of the lives of all citizens than here in the
State of New York; and

WHEREAS, Born in Manhattan, New York, young Gregory Barulich could
often be found on the golf course or reading in a used bookstore; after
graduating from high school, he proudly served his country as a member
of the United States Army; and

WHEREAS, Upon the completion of his military service, Gregory
Barulich worked as a Senior Project Engineer-Distinguished Associate
with Corning Inc. for 38 years; and

WHEREAS, Since 2007, Gregory Barulich has been an enthusiastic
volunteer with the Chemung Volunteer Action Corps, donating his time and
energies working with the American Red Cross and his church; and

WHEREAS, In addition, Gregory Barulich enjoys sharing his passion
for reading with first graders at Pine City Elementary School, and both
Cornell Cooperative Extension's Ag Literacy Week and Summer
Literacy/Learning Program; he truly loves to be around young people and
is always ready and willing to accept a hug from any child; and

WHEREAS, With him throughout has been his wife of 31 years,
Christine, their four children, and six grandchildren, all of whom have
shown him love and support and rejoice in his many achievements; and

WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an
individual for the benefit of others which Gregory Barulich has
displayed throughout his life; and

WHEREAS, Gregory Barulich, a very active and industrious gentleman,
has inspired and enriched the lives of those he serves through his
volunteerism, generously sharing the wisdom gained over years of
experiencing life to its fullest; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Gregory Barulich upon the occasion of his designation for special
recognition by the New York State Office for the Aging on May 21, 2019;
and be it further
