LEGISLATIVE   RESOLUTION  memorializing  Governor  Andrew  M.  Cuomo  to
proclaim June 9, 2014, as Italian American Day in New York State

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body, in keeping  with  its
time-honored  traditions,  to recognize celebrations which foster ethnic
pride and enhance the profile of cultural  diversity  which  strengthens
the fabric of the communities of New York State; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to  memorial-
ize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 9, 2014, as Italian Ameri-
can Day in New York State; and
  WHEREAS,  Italian  American  Day  is  a joyous celebration of culture,
civic conviviality and other merriment,  held  annually  throughout  the
State  of New York, in commemoration of the Republic of Italy's National
Holiday, "Festa Della Repubblica Italiana," Italy's 4th of July; and
  WHEREAS, Festa Della Repubblica Italiana, a national holiday in Italy,
marks the day when Italy voted, after  World  War  II  and  fascism,  to
become a democratic republic; and
  WHEREAS,  Italian  American Day celebrates 41 years of the heritage of
Italy's glorious historical past, the wealth of  its  present,  and  the
opportunities of its future; and
  WHEREAS,  This auspicious day provides an opportunity to celebrate the
significant contributions of Italian Americans so that  all  people  may
know  and  appreciate  Italian  history  and traditions, and of the role
Italian Americans have played, and will continue to play, in our  socie-
ty; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 9, 2014, as Itali-
an American Day in New York State; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State  of  New
York.
