LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring George and Duffy Lent upon the occasion
of their designation as recipients of the 2013 Good Neighbor Award by
the Unadilla Chamber of Commerce

WHEREAS, It is the practice of this Legislative Body to take note of and
publicly acknowledge individuals of remarkable integrity and character
who have inspired and brought pride to our majestic Empire State with
their strong contributions to the community and model citizenship; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
George and Duffy Lent upon the occasion of their designation as recipi-
ents of the 2013 Good Neighbor Award by the Unadilla Chamber of Commerce
on Sunday, April 21, 2013, in Unadilla, New York; and
WHEREAS, George and Duffy Lent are both graduates of the Unadilla
Central School; George graduated in 1962 from Paul Smith College with a
forestry degree and during that time, he and Duffy were married in 1961;
and
WHEREAS, George Lent was employed with the U.S. Geological Survey for
40 years; in 2004, both he and Duffy moved back to Unadilla and
purchased the house and property which borders Martin Brook Park; in
2005, the Unadilla Park Commission made George and Duffy Lent stewards
of the Park; and
WHEREAS, During the summer months in the morning, George and Duffy
Lent open the gates of the park to the community making sure the pavil-
ion and picnic areas are clean; in addition, they explore and inspect
the property of the 15 acre park to keep it fully operational; and
WHEREAS, Upon moving back to Unadilla, George and Duffy Lent have been
involved with various environmental issues; concerned about keeping the
environment clean, they began a recycling center for families which
expanded to 50 families in participation; as the center grew too large,
the Lent family went to the Town of Lawrence to have a recycling facili-
ty put in place while continuing to volunteer their services at the
facility; and
WHEREAS, George and Duffy Lent have a special love for the outdoors
which is evident with their gardens of fruit and vegetables; they both
volunteer for the local food pantry; 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; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is pleased to have this opportunity to
express its highest admiration for George and Duffy Lent and to wish
them continued success in all of their future endeavors; now, therefore,
be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor George and Duffy Lent upon the occasion of their designation as
recipients of the 2013 Good Neighbor Award by the Unadilla Chamber of
Commerce; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to George and Duffy Lent.
