Stan Rexroad is our BEST volunteer for August!
WHEREAS, the Council of the City of Buckhannon resolved during its regular meeting of October 18, 2018, to honor residents of our Buckhannon-Upshur community who perform extraordinary service while embracing the kind & giving spirit of volunteerism; and,
WHEREAS, Buckhannon has long championed community service & has recognized persons who have given selflessly for the benefit of our City’s Fire Department, Stockert Youth & Community Center, & Police Department, but had not until recently- formally recognized others who generally perform many other acts of service & kindness; and,
WHEREAS, with the 2018 establishment of our Buckhannon Volunteer Center, the City deemed it to be reasonable & appropriate to henceforth recognize our community’s most giving volunteers with previous honorees of the Buckhannon Exemplary Service Testimonial (BEST) Award being Amanda Hayes, Zachary Mutchler, Robin Keough, Shirley Tinney, Bill Nicholson, Dr. Joseph Reed, Dr. Paul Richter, April Keating, Brad & Kim Lincecome, & Dr. Kathy Gregg.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DAVID W. McCAULEY, as MAYOR OF THE CITY OF BUCKHANNON, pursuant to the power & authority duly vested in me, do hereby proclaim as our City’s 11th recipient of our Buckhannon Exemplary Service Testimonial (BEST) Award for August of 2019 to be STANLEY REXROAD. STAN REXROAD has long been an important & regular volunteer & participant in all Create Buckhannon activities. MR. REXROAD is one of the most visible volunteers at the enormously popular Festival Fridays which are sponsored by Create Buckhannon & conducted in our Jawbone Park during Friday afternoons & evenings from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekends. Whenever there is an elimination dinner involving Create Buckhannon or CJ Maggies, STAN REXROAD is one of the first people to come volunteer his time for the many philanthropic causes of our B-U community. STAN is a silent helper whose actions are louder than words. MR. REXROAD supports all things “community.” Simply stated, STAN REXROAD has helped us all in our B-U community to be better & happier in many ways. I direct the establishment of our City’s new BEST bench & installation of a permanent placard in Jawbone Park to forever honor & recognize STAN REXROAD & all past & future honorees of our City’s BEST award.
I further urge all residents to join our City’s most honored guest, STAN REXROAD, his wife Charmaine, his friends & admirers, & me, along with all members of our City government family during our public ceremony to be conducted at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 15, 2019 as we honor our City’s 11th recipient of our BEST award. We all wish MR. REXROAD the best as he continues to work hard for our B-U community. May every resident be mindful of the importance of community service & giving of one’s self & be inspired to give selflessly for the benefit of others as we pay tribute to the many substantial contributions of our exceptional volunteers including the 11th recipient of our City’s BEST Award, MR. STAN REXROAD.
Given under my hand & official seal of The City of Buckhannon this 15th day of August, 2019.
David W. McCauley, Mayor
