In Recognition Of Mrs. Penny Lukenbill’S Service To Marshall County, Indiana December 2, 2014
Jackie Walorski, R-IN
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize Mrs. Penny Lukenbill, for her service and dedication to Marshall County and the State of Indiana for the past 15 years. A resident of Plymouth, Indiana, Penny and her husband Kenneth have been married for 39 years. In 1981 they welcomed their son Adam who is now an attorney and partner in his father’s law firm Lukenbill and Lukenbill. Eager to continue her own education, Mrs. Lukenbill received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Indiana University South Bend in 1995, where she graduated cum laude. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Lukenbill has displayed a constant commitment to serving Hoosiers of Marshall County. In 1999 she was elected to serve as the county treasurer, and held that position until 2007, when she was elected as the Marshall County Auditor. In addition to her duties as auditor, she served as president of both the Association of Indiana Counties and the Indiana County Treasurers Association. Mrs. Lukenbill’s dedication to her community is evident from her past membership on the Plymouth Public Library Board of Trustees, Plymouth Park Board, and the Plymouth Industrial Development Corporation Board. During Mrs. Lukenbill’s distinguished career in public service, she has received multiple awards and recognitions. In 2012, she received Outstanding County Auditor from the Indiana Association of County Commissioners and in 2004, she was awarded the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce Public Servant of the Year. These awards are just a small reminder of how much Mrs. Lukenbill’s service has meant to the citizens of Marshall County. Her exemplary dedication to the community is seen in her service as an elder at the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth and in leading past Lions Sight mission trips to Mexico. On behalf of Indiana’s Second Congressional District, I am honored to recognize Penny Lukenbill’s service and her unprecedented community involvement throughout Marshall County."

Brian Higgins, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor Lou Schriver as he receives the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Chamber of Commerce of the Tonawandas. Known as Ramblin’ Lou, the Tonawanda native’s distinguished career in broadcasting is worthy of praise. Born and raised on Young Street in Tonawanda, New York, Ramblin’ Lou worked at his father’s riding academy during his childhood. While he has earned national recognitions, he has always remained close to his roots, doing all he can to promote the Tonawandas. In 1947, Ramblin’ Lou started a “Twin Cities” radio show on 1440AM in Niagara Falls, New York to honor merchants in the Tonawandas. He has performed many assemblies at Tonawanda High School to benefit various charitable causes and community members. Annually, Lou and Charlie Fleischman organized an annual benefit show for the “Twin Cities” for over 25 years. Since the introduction of Canal Fest in 1983, the Ramblin’ Lou Family Band has performed at the iconic Tonawanda festival. A lifetime member of Musicians’ Local #209/106 of Tonawanda, Lou served as the president and general manager of WXRL Radio. Ramblin’ Lou is the recipient of many local and national honors. In 1978, he was inducted into the Walkway of Stars in the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee. Other honors include the induction into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 1996; the Distinguished Broadcaster Award from the Buffalo Broadcaster Pioneers in May 1998; the Tonawanda High School Distinguished Alumni Award in May 2002; serving as Grand Marshall for the Canal Fest Parade in July 2007; and election into the New York State Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010. Mr. Speaker, thank you for allowing me a few moments to recognize the life and career of Ramblin’ Lou Schriver. His broadcast excellence and promotion of his hometown are honorable, and I wish him the best in all his future endeavors."
