LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  Jerry  Mavros for 50 years of distin-
guished service to the Oyster Bay Lions Club

WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body to take note of and
publicly acknowledge individuals of remarkable integrity  and  character
who  have  inspired  and brought pride to our majestic Empire State with
their strong contributions to the community and model citizenship; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions;  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Jerry Mavros for 50 years of distinguished service  to  the  Oyster  Bay
Lions  Club,  to  be  celebrated  on  Sunday,  April 28, 2013, on Centre
Island, New York; and
  WHEREAS, This special event is also the Oyster Bay Lions Club's Eighth
Annual Spring Benefit which will support Guide  Dogs  for  the  Blind  -
America's VetDogs along with other worthy causes; and
  WHEREAS,  Lion Jerry Mavros has been an exemplary member of the Oyster
Bay Lions Club for the past 50 years; born and raised in Oyster Bay, New
York, he grew up in the family restaurant business with his father; and
  WHEREAS, In 1951, Jerry Mavros was drafted during the Korean War where
he proudly served his country in Germany as a Morse  Code  Operator  for
the  United  States  Army;  this  marked the first time that he had ever
ventured off Long Island; and
  WHEREAS, Upon his return, Jerry Mavros married his high school sweeth-
eart, Stella, in June of 1953; and
  WHEREAS, Upon his father's retirement from "The Oyster Bay Restaurant"
in 1962, the torch was passed on to Jerry Mavros and  his  brother;  the
restaurant  remained  a  familiar  local  mainstay for the next 24 years
until it was sold in 1988; and
  WHEREAS, Jerry Mavros has served his community through the Oyster  Bay
Lions  Club with passion, humor and the commitment to help those who are
less fortunate; he exemplifies the Lions motto "We Serve"; in  addition,
he  served  as  club President from 1970-1971, and is a recipient of the
prestigious Lions Robert J. Uplinger Award; and
  WHEREAS, Along with his wife, Stella, with him  throughout  have  been
their  three  children,  10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren,
all of whom feel privileged to be a part of his life and rejoice in  his
achievements; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought  to  our  atten-
tion,  they  should  be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Jerry  Mavros for 50 years of distinguished service to the Oyster
Bay Lions Club; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Jerry Mavros.
