WHEREAS, It is the practice 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
organizations  which  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 50th Anniversary of the United Way of Rockland  County  to  be
celebrated at its Anniversary Gala on Friday, May 30, 2014, at the Nyack
Seaport in Nyack, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  The United Way of Rockland County will celebrate this auspi-
cious milestone of five decades of service to the people  who  live  and
work in Rockland County; and
  WHEREAS,  The  United Way of Rockland County is a solid cornerstone of
the community, and stands ready to continue  its  important  mission  of
increasing  the  value  and  impact  of  community support and resources
through collaborations that advance the common good for  many  years  to
come; and
  WHEREAS,  This worthy organization's vision is a community where indi-
viduals and families have the skills to  achieve  a  quality  education,
economic security, and healthy lifestyle; and
  WHEREAS,  With the commitment of its volunteers, non-profit, corporate
and government partners, as well as all past and present members of  the
United  Way  Board  of  Directors,  the United Way of Rockland County is
proud of its achievements which could not have been accomplished without
their continued support; and
  WHEREAS, It is the custom 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 the citizens of
this great Empire State; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of  this  Legislative  Body  that  those  who
enhance  the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown a
long and sustained commitment to excellence certainly  have  earned  the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the United Way of Rockland County to
be celebrated on May 30, 2014; and be it further
