[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E467] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING JILL SPIELER ______ HON. ELIOT L. ENGEL of new york in the house of representatives Monday, April 15, 2019 Mr. ENGEL. Madam Speaker, it is my pleasure to honor a woman who has done a tremendous amount to build and strengthen the Scarsdale community in my district, Ms. Jill Spieler, this year's recipient of the prestigious Scarsdale Bowl Award. For over 70 years, the Scarsdale Bowl has been awarded a Scarsdale resident who ``has given unselfishly of time, energy, and effort to the civic welfare of the community.'' Nothing could better describe Jill. She has a long and distinguished record of volunteer services to Scarsdale and well beyond. Jill began her service to Scarsdale in 1981 as a founding member of Kids B.A.S.E. and The Little School. She served as a board member from 1983 to 1988, then became President of the Board where she served two terms. She continued on the board till 1998, and during her tenure she provided outstanding leadership, especially during some difficult times. Jill continued her commitment to the community by serving on the Scarsdale Village Board of Ethics, the Advisory Council on Youth, and the Village Parks and Recreation Council, becoming Chair of the Recreation Committee in 2000. She was also active member of the League of Women Voters and chaired the Voter Service Committee. There are many other examples of Jill's community involvement, but they are too many to mention. She is, without question, a highly respected, trusted, insightful and collaborative community leader who has contributed a great deal to Scarsdale. Jill's selfless contribution of time and energy to community affairs epitomizes the principles symbolized by the Scarsdale Bowl. Madam Speaker, the Bowl Award is considered the highest and most prestigious recognition given for volunteer service in Scarsdale. It is no surprise then that this year that award is going to Jill Spieler. As Member of Congress representing Scarsdale, I want to congratulate Jill on receiving this wonderful honor and thank her for her years of dedicated service to the community. ____________________
