LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his
designation for special honor by Island Harvest on April 30, 2009

WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality and character of life in the communities across New  York  State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions  and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare of the
community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his designation for special honor  by
Island Harvest on April 30, 2009; and
  WHEREAS, Individuals who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS,  A  resident  of Dix Hills, New York, Clark Gillies has given
not only of his time and energies but also of his  competence,  intelli-
gence  and  leadership  and consequently has been designated for special
honor; and
  WHEREAS, While demonstrating the true spirit  of  volunteerism,  Clark
Gillies  has helped Island Harvest, the third largest food rescue organ-
ization in the United States, to serve as the bridge between  those  who
have food and those who need it; and
  WHEREAS, Island Harvest volunteers collect good surplus food from over
600 local restaurants, caterers, farms and other food-related businesses
and  distribute  it  to  a  network  of close to 500 soup kitchens, food
pantries and other places where those in need can access it; and
  WHEREAS, An essential element of all societies, volunteerism  provides
a  way in which the human values of community, caring and serving can be
sustained and strengthened; 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
commend Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his designation  for  special
honor  by  Island  Harvest  on April 30, 2009, and to wish him continued
success in all of his future endeavors; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Clark Gillies.
