LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the Town of Wappinger Community Day
Parade on Sunday, September 22, 2013

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body, in keeping with its
time-honored traditions, to recognize and applaud  events  which  foster
community  pride  and  exemplify  the  diversity  which  represents  and
strengthens the communities of the great State of New York; and
  WHEREAS, The town of Wappinger is the smallest and  youngest  town  in
Dutchess  County  but  in  1875  it  was the most populous; its industry
powered by the Wappinger Creek and Wappinger's Falls  and  the  agricul-
tural  life  in  the hamlets helped play a huge role in the formation of
Wappinger; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, this Legislative  Body  is  justly
proud  to  commemorate  the  Town  of  Wappinger Community Day Parade on
Sunday, September 22, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, The Town of Wappinger Community Day will feature, in addition
to the 38th Annual Community Day Parade, community and vendor booths,  a
carnival, and fireworks; and
  WHEREAS, The Declaration of Independence will be read, patriotic music
will be played and, throughout the day, kids will be able to have fun on
rides and participate in hula hoop and watermelon-eating contests; and
  WHEREAS,  There  will also be a wonderful assortment of craft vendors,
food concessions, and community booths will offer a wide array of useful
and helpful information as well; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commemorate  the  Town  of  Wappinger  Community  Day  Parade on Sunday,
September 22, 2013; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the 2013 Wappinger Community Day Committee.
