LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION recognizing Saturday, July 26, 2014, as National
Day of the Cowboy in New York State

WHEREAS, In the course of American history, the patriotism of the  citi-
zens  of  this  great  country has become embodied in revered symbols of
loyalty, strength and determination; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to recognize  Saturday,
July  26,  2014,  as  National Day of the Cowboy in New York State; this
auspicious occasion will be celebrated by  the  Painted  Pony  Rodeo  at
their  2nd  annual  Ranches,  Rodeos  & Wranglers Weekend on July 24-27,
2014, in Lake Luzerne, New York; and
  WHEREAS, In 2004, AMERICAN COWBOY magazine launched the  National  Day
of the American Cowboy campaign as a way to acknowledge and preserve the
heritage, history and culture of America's Cowboys and Cowgirls; and
  WHEREAS,  Pioneering  men  and  women, recognized as "Cowboys," helped
establish the American West; the  Cowboy  embodies  honesty,  integrity,
courage, compassion, respect, a strong work ethic, and patriotism; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Cowboy  archetype  transcends  ethnicity,  gender,  and
geographic boundaries; they are excellent  stewards  of  this  country's
soil  and its creatures, and live off of the land to protect and enhance
the environment; and
  WHEREAS, Cowboy traditions have been a part of  American  culture  for
generations;  they  continue  to  be  an  important  part of the economy
through the work of countless ranchers in all 50 of  the  United  States
that contribute to the economic well-being of nearly every county in the
Nation; and
  WHEREAS,  Cowboys  are  central figures in literature, film, and music
and occupy a central place in the public imagination; and
  WHEREAS, True  American  icons,  the  ongoing  contributions  made  by
Cowboys  and  Cowgirls  to  their  communities  should be recognized and
encouraged by all; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
recognize  Saturday, July 26, 2014, as National Day of the Cowboy in New
York State; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Painted Pony Rodeo.
