LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the Second Annual Tri-Hamlet Commu-
nity Celebration Day on June 1, 2013

WHEREAS, It is the sense 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 who would 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 Second Annual Tri-Hamlet Community Celebration Day on June 1,
2013; and
WHEREAS, The communities of Shirley, Mastic, and Mastic Beach, known
as the Tri-Hamlet Community, are the hidden jewel of Long Island; and
WHEREAS, Rich in Revolutionary War history, natural parks and recre-
ational waterways, the Tri-Hamlet Community enjoys many blessings but
also faces serious challenges; and
WHEREAS, Residents of the Tri-Hamlet Community and elected officials
from every level of government engaged in a six month collaborative
effort to produce the Tri-Hamlet Renaissance Project Report, organizing
themselves into six work groups: Infrastructure, Economic Development,
Real Estate, Quality of Life, Public Safety, and Marketing; the partic-
ipants produced a series of proposals to address these challenges; and
WHEREAS, The Report's recommendations are practical and achievable
solutions to enhance the quality of life in the community for gener-
ations to come; and
WHEREAS, One of the first achievements of the project is the success
of the First Annual Tri-Hamlet Day; thousands of people enjoyed the many
treasures located throughout the community, including the William Floyd
Estate, Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, the Manor of St. George, the
gravesite of Revolutionary War General Nathaniel Woodhull, and the
Village of Mastic Beach Town Square; and
WHEREAS, The work of the Tri-Hamlet Renaissance Project is another
example of the long American tradition of self-reliance, individual
initiative, and grassroots activism; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals and organizations of such noble aims and accomplishments are
brought to our attention, they should be celebrated and recognized by
all the citizens of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the Second Annual Tri-Hamlet Community Celebration Day on
June 1, 2013; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Tri-Hamlet Community.
