RESOLUTION NO. 100824

 

Declaring Reverend John “Modest” Miles and Jeanette Richard Miles to be a "First Couple of Kansas City" for the month of October, 2010.

 

WHEREAS, the “First Couple of Kansas City” award was created for couples who have made outstanding contributions to the community; and

 

WHEREAS, this award is given to a couple who has consistently served the needs of others, while frequently going unnoticed; and

 

WHEREAS, Rev. and Mrs. John Miles are that “First Couple”; and

 

WHEREAS, John and Jeanette Miles are lifelong friends and have been married for 45 years; and

 

WHEREAS, giving back to the community has been a part of John and Jeanette Miles’ lives. As a husband and wife team, they truly exemplified extraordinary volunteer service to the City of Kansas City, Missouri; and

 

WHEREAS, this award is being given to Rev. and Mrs. Miles for giving their time to make good things happen in Kansas City. Sometimes they are focused on the same project; other times they work on different projects. But, either way, they are dynamos, and, as a couple, they are working to make a difference; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby declare Reverend John “Modest” Miles and Mrs. Jeanette Richard Miles to be the "First Couple of Kansas City" for the month of October, 2010; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Reverend John “Modest” Miles and Jeanette Richard Miles with the appreciation of the Mayor, Council and citizens of Kansas City for their outstanding contributions to the community.
