WHEREAS,  It  is  the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize those

rialize Governor Andrew M.  Cuomo to proclaim Wednesday, May 7, 2014, as

  WHEREAS,  The  YMCA  has touched the lives of virtually all Americans,
through  its  support  of  many  endeavors  including  camping,   public
libraries,  night  schools,  group  swimming lessons and lifesaving, and
teaching English  as  a  second  language,  chronic  disease  prevention
programs; and
  WHEREAS, The Alliance of New York State YMCAs is comprised of 45 inde-
pendent  Ys  and more than 120 YMCA branches, making up an extraordinary
group of dedicated nonprofits working together to strengthen the  commu-
nities of New York State; and
  WHEREAS, The YMCA is for youth development and is dedicated to nurtur-
ing  the  potential  of  every  child  and teen; the YMCA is for healthy
living and is committed to improving the nation's health and well-being;
and the YMCA is for social responsibility as  well  and  is  devoted  to
giving back and providing support for its neighbors; and
  WHEREAS, The YMCA created the nation's largest health day for children
and is celebrating the 23rd year of Healthy Kids Day; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to  our  atten-
tion,  they  should be celebrated and recognized by all citizens of this
great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
