LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring the Patchogue Kiwanis Club upon the
occasion of celebrating its 75th Anniversary on May 11, 2013

WHEREAS, It is the custom 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 that are devoted to the welfare of the community
and its citizenry; and
WHEREAS, It is also the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize
and pay tribute to those fraternal organizations of high purpose and
worthy accomplishment whose endeavors have faithfully served the welfare
of the citizens of the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor the
Patchogue Kiwanis Club upon the occasion of celebrating its 75th Anni-
versary; this auspicious occasion will be celebrated at the Club's Char-
ter Night Dinner, to be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013; and
WHEREAS, Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to
changing the world, one child and one community at a time; and
WHEREAS, The six permanent objects of Kiwanis International are to:
give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material
values of life; encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all
human relationships; promote the adoption and the application of higher
social, business, and professional standards; develop, by precept and
example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship;
provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring
friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communi-
ties; and cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opin-
ion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness,
justice, patriotism, and goodwill; and
WHEREAS, The Kiwanis Club of Patchogue, New York, was chartered on May
5, 1938 and was sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Freeport, New York; it
will celebrate its 75th Anniversary on May 11, 2013; and
WHEREAS, The mission statement of the Kiwanis Club of Patchogue, New
York, is "Through camaraderie, leadership, and teamwork of our members
with a focus on children, we serve the needs of our community and the
goals of Kiwanis International"; and
WHEREAS, The Club's vision statement is, "We will be the premiere
service club in the community providing quality service, especially to
children, while building upon our traditions and through the partic-
ipation and teamwork of our dedicated membership"; and
WHEREAS, This auspicious occasion presents a unique opportunity for
this Legislative Body to recognize and pay tribute to the Patchogue
Kiwanis Club; and
WHEREAS, Organizations of singular distinction such as the Patchogue
Kiwanis Club provide a model for enhancing the quality of life in the
community and, as such, merit the grateful praise of the community of
the State of New York; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Patchogue Kiwanis Club.
