LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the Second Annual Tri-Hamlet Commu-
nity Celebration Day on June 1, 2013

WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality and character of life in the communities across New  York  State
are reflective of the concerned and dedicated efforts of those organiza-
tions  and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare of the
community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the Second Annual Tri-Hamlet Community Celebration Day on June  1,
2013; and
  WHEREAS,  The  communities of Shirley, Mastic, and Mastic Beach, known
as the Tri-Hamlet Community, are the hidden jewel of Long Island; and
  WHEREAS, Rich in Revolutionary War history, natural parks  and  recre-
ational  waterways,  the  Tri-Hamlet Community enjoys many blessings but
also faces serious challenges; and
  WHEREAS, Residents of the Tri-Hamlet Community and  elected  officials
from  every  level  of  government  engaged in a six month collaborative
effort to produce the Tri-Hamlet Renaissance Project Report,  organizing
themselves  into six work groups:  Infrastructure, Economic Development,
Real Estate, Quality of Life, Public Safety, and Marketing; the  partic-
ipants produced a series of proposals to address these challenges; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Report's  recommendations  are practical and achievable
solutions to enhance the quality of life in  the  community  for  gener-
ations to come; and
  WHEREAS,  One  of the first achievements of the project is the success
of the First Annual Tri-Hamlet Day; thousands of people enjoyed the many
treasures located throughout the community, including the William  Floyd
Estate,  Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, the Manor of St. George, the
gravesite of Revolutionary  War  General  Nathaniel  Woodhull,  and  the
Village of Mastic Beach Town Square; and
  WHEREAS,  The  work  of  the Tri-Hamlet Renaissance Project is another
example of the long  American  tradition  of  self-reliance,  individual
initiative, and grassroots activism; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals and organizations  of  such  noble  aims  and  accomplishments  are
brought  to  our  attention, they should be celebrated and recognized by
all the citizens of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commemorate  the  Second  Annual Tri-Hamlet Community Celebration Day on
June 1, 2013; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Tri-Hamlet Community.
