     MADAM PRESIDENT:

    I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

    A SENATE RESOLUTION honoring Joyce Christmas upon her retirement from the staff of the Indiana Senate.

    Whereas, Joyce Christmas was first hired by the Indiana Senate in 1980. Her responsibilities included working as a session receptionist and later supervising the staff and functions of the phone center. In 2003, she retired from this position;

    Whereas, Joyce is known throughout the State House for her colorful yet sophisticated attire, always with matching hats or headwear and unique jewelry; and

    Whereas, Joyce is a charming, caring, and loving individual and will be missed by everyone who has had the opportunity to know her and work with her: Therefore,


Be it resolved by the Senate of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That on behalf of the people of the State of Indiana, we hereby extend our sincere appreciation to Joyce Christmas upon her retirement from the staff of the Indiana Senate.
