LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  welcoming the Staten Island Daughters of Africa
upon the occasion of their visit to The New York State Capitol,  Albany,
New York, on May 21, 2013

WHEREAS,  It  is  incumbent  upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize and acknowledge those within our midst who have  made  signif-
icant contributions to the quality of life therein; and
  WHEREAS, From time to time this Legislative Body takes note of certain
extraordinary  individuals  and organizations it wishes to recognize for
their valued contributions to the success and progress  of  society  and
publicly  acknowledge  their  endeavors  which  have  enhanced the basic
humanity among us all; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to welcome  the  Staten
Island  Daughters  of Africa upon the occasion of their visit to The New
York State Capitol, Albany, New York, on Tuesday, May 21, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, Founded in 1996, the Daughters of Africa is a community youth
group for boys and girls, whose mission is to aid in the  efficient  use
of  existing services, and to help young people become civic leaders, as
well as active in the political process; and
  WHEREAS, Under the luminous direction  of  Executive  Director  Sharon
Peake,  the  organization  identifies and fills gaps in the recreational
and service network of the local community; and
  WHEREAS, In an effort to give back to the community, the Daughters  of
Africa host an annual Christmas party, and hold a toy drive for families
of modest means; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown  a
long  and  sustained  commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
welcome the Staten Island Daughters of Africa upon the occasion of their
visit to The New York State Capitol, Albany, New York; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Daughters of Africa.
