the  quality  and  character  of life in the communities across New York
State are reflective of the concerned and  dedicated  efforts  of  those

organization  in  the world; Lions Club International is an organization
deeply committed to meeting the challenges of public service; and
  WHEREAS, The goal of the Rushville Lions Club  and  the  entire  Lions

  WHEREAS,  The auspicious occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Rush-
ville Lions presents a unique opportunity for this Legislative  Body  to
recognize and pay tribute to the Rushville Lions Club; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when an organ-
ization of such noble aims and accomplishments is brought to our  atten-
tion,  it should be recognized and applauded by all the citizens of this
great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
