SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 34
(By Senators Chafin, Stollings, Plymale, Jenkins and Cole)
Requesting the Division of Highways to name bridge number 50-36-0.30 on Sunnyside Road, just outside of Fort Gay, crossing over Mill Creek, in Wayne County, West Virginia, the “Mavis Granny Castle Bridge”.
Whereas, Mavis Castle, eighty-nine years old, was born, raised and has lived all her life on Sunnyside Road in Wayne County, West Virginia; and
Whereas, Mavis Castle, until she was sixty years of age, worked for vocational rehabilitation; and
Whereas, During the same year of her retirement from vocational rehabilitation, Mavis Castle began volunteering as a foster grandparent in the Wayne County school system, where she continues, to date, and has served in this capacity for a spectacular twenty-eight years; and
Whereas, In light of her nearly three-decade span of valuable volunteer service, most of this at Fort Gay Elementary School, it is only fitting that a bridge near the town of her devoted service be named after her, in her honor and as a token of appreciation; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name bridge number 50-36-0.30 on Sunnyside Road, just outside of Fort Gay, crossing over Mill Creek, Wayne County, West Virginia, the “Mavis Granny Castle Bridge”; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is requested to have made and be placed signs identifying the bridge, in bold and prominent letters, as the “Mavis Granny Castle Bridge”; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the Senate is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to Mavis Castle, to her son, Larry Castle, and to the Secretary of the Department of Transportation.
