LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to declare
November  2013,  as  Elks Veterans Remembrance Month in the State of New
York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of  this  Legislative  Body  to  recognize  and
praise  organizations  of  true  purpose and worthy accomplishment whose
dedication and commitment to service, patriotism, and  fellowship  merit
the highest commendation; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to memorialize Governor
Andrew  M.  Cuomo to declare November 2013, as Elks Veterans Remembrance
Month in the State of New York; and
  WHEREAS, Founded in New York City in 1868, the Benevolent and  Protec-
tive  Order of Elks (B.P.O.E.) of the United States of America is one of
the oldest, largest, and most  active  fraternal  organizations  in  the
country;  today  it proudly numbers nearly one million men and women, as
members in more than 2,000 lodges nationally, who share a commitment  to
its basic principles; and
  WHEREAS,  The  principles  of  the  Elks  are the practice of charity,
justice, brotherly love and fidelity; the promotion of the  welfare  and
the  enhancement  of the happiness of its members; the quickening of the
spirit of American patriotism and the cultivation  of  good  fellowship,
and to serve our veterans; and
  WHEREAS, The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has a long histo-
ry  of  service to our veterans, instituting the first G.I. Loan program
for returning soldiers after World War I, and sponsors programs  promot-
ing  American  patriotism,  and scholarship and support programs for our
veterans; and
  WHEREAS, The Benevolent and Protective  Order  of  Elks  is  extremely
proud  of the United States, the American flag, and our veterans, and in
November, we will observe Veterans Day, and  pay  just  tribute  to  our
brave servicemen and women and their families; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to declare November  2013  as  Elks
Veterans Remembrance Month in the State of New York; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted  to  The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
