                      Thursday, November 30, 2017

  Ms. STEFANIK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to celebrate Beulah Meloche 
for turning 111 years old.
  Ms. Meloche was born on November 23, 1906, in the town of Chazy, New 
York. At the time of her birth, Teddy Roosevelt was president and the 
average life expectancy was only 47 years. Having grown up in 
Plattsburgh, Ms. Meloche now resides happily at the RiverLedge Health 
Care Rehabilitation Center in Ogdensburg, New York.
  As a supercentenarian, Ms. Meloche is one of only about 70 like her 
in the United States. On behalf of New York's 21st District, I am proud 
to wish Ms. Meloche all the best on her birthday. Her longevity is a 
testament to the human spirit and an inspiration for the country.
