  played an active role in Kiwanis International, serving as

  realized; and

  what has become known as the Adventure Playground; now completed,
  the facility features a plaque memorializing Mr. Slough; and
         WHEREAS, Chuck Slough was dedicated to his community and to
  upholding the Kiwanis mission of serving others, and the Adventure

  generosity of spirit; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 83rd Texas
  Legislature hereby honor the memory of Chuck Slough for his efforts
