LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Dutchess County Agricultural Soci-
ety,  Inc.  upon  the  occasion  of  hosting the Dutchess County Fair on
August 20-25, 2013

WHEREAS, The quality of life of the citizens of the State of New York is
greatly enriched by the immense diversity of the cultural,  educational,
recreational   and  entertainment  opportunities  and  events  available
throughout the State; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the The Dutchess County Agricultural Society, Inc. upon the occasion  of
hosting the Dutchess County Fair on August 20-25, 2013; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Dutchess County Fair is held annually in Rhinebeck, New
York; being one of the town's largest  and  most  popular  events,  each
year, it takes place at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds; and
  WHEREAS,  A  tradition  for over 160 years, the annual Dutchess County
Fair is an event like no other; nationally recognized for  its  agricul-
ture,  food  and  vendors,  the  fair draws approximately half a million
people per year, and is the second  largest  county  Fair  in  New  York
State; and
  WHEREAS,  What  makes  this particular event special is that each year
gardeners enhance the character of the 162-acre fairgrounds with  dozens
of  themed  gardens;  waterfalls  and ponds filled with koi and colorful
water lilies add significantly to the Horticulture Center; and
  WHEREAS, In addition, one can find relaxation in the quietude  of  the
new  Memorial  Garden, along with a walk through the Horticulture Build-
ing; the Dutchess County Fair affords an  opportunity  to  showcase  not
only agriculture, but also all that is best about its past; and
  WHEREAS,  The treasured values of families united and wholesome enter-
tainment for all ages reflected at the  Dutchess  County  Fair  help  to
foster community spirit and cooperation; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the The Dutchess County  Agricultural  Society,  Inc.  upon  the
occasion  of hosting the Dutchess County Fair on August 20-25, 2013; and
be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the The Dutchess County Agricultural Society, Inc.
