LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his
designation for special honor by Island Harvest on April 30, 2009

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 commend
Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his designation for special honor by
Island Harvest on April 30, 2009; and
WHEREAS, Individuals who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
WHEREAS, A resident of Dix Hills, New York, Clark Gillies has given
not only of his time and energies but also of his competence, intelli-
gence and leadership and consequently has been designated for special
honor; and
WHEREAS, While demonstrating the true spirit of volunteerism, Clark
Gillies has helped Island Harvest, the third largest food rescue organ-
ization in the United States, to serve as the bridge between those who
have food and those who need it; and
WHEREAS, Island Harvest volunteers collect good surplus food from over
600 local restaurants, caterers, farms and other food-related businesses
and distribute it to a network of close to 500 soup kitchens, food
pantries and other places where those in need can access it; and
WHEREAS, An essential element of all societies, volunteerism provides
a way in which the human values of community, caring and serving can be
sustained and strengthened; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Clark Gillies upon the occasion of his designation for special
honor by Island Harvest on April 30, 2009, and to wish him continued
success in all of his future endeavors; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Clark Gillies.
