LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION congratulating David Francis Wolmark upon the
occasion of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most
prestigious of Scouting honors, on April 13, 2013

WHEREAS, David Francis Wolmark, through his diligence and rigorous
efforts, has achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank,
Eagle Scout; the Eagle Court of Honor ceremony will be held on Saturday,
April 13, 2013, at the United Methodist Church, Port Washington, New
York; and
WHEREAS, David Francis Wolmark is a member of Boy Scouts of America
Troop 7; and
WHEREAS, America has achieved her greatest heights of glory through
the dedication, determination and tireless efforts of the outstanding
citizens of this Nation; and
WHEREAS, It is only with the continued diligence and devotion of our
youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and
WHEREAS, The Boy Scouts of America and its members are dedicated to
the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;
WHEREAS, The highest achievement of leadership in Scouting, earned by
only five percent of all Boy Scouts, is the distinguished rank of Eagle
Scout; and
WHEREAS, This outstanding young man has been involved in Scouting for
many years, has lived up to Scouting's ideals and has attained all of
the necessary achievements, including completion of a community service
project, which was successfully planned, developed and executed; and
WHEREAS, David Francis Wolmark's Eagle Scout Service Project was a
beautification plan to enhance the usefulness of the grounds of the Port
Washington Center Citizen's Center; this vital project targeted the
vegetable garden on the south side of the building which had four rotten
96" x 46" in-ground vegetable planters and a dysfunctional watering
system, three flower beds on the north and west sides of the building
which either went unused or have been neglected and the lack of outdoor
facilities for senior activities; and
WHEREAS, David Francis Wolmark constructed and installed five new
wooden in-ground vegetable planters and a new easy to use sprinkler
system; he then planted vegetables for the season so the seniors can
grow fresh produce for the center's daily lunch service; and
WHEREAS, Furthermore, he planted new flowers and shrubs and then
fertilized the three new flower beds; he also worked with a landscaper
and stone mason to purchase and install an outdoor concrete park chess
table with matching stools which was placed under a shady tree in front
of the building to promote outdoor activity; and
WHEREAS, David Francis Wolmark's perseverance in rising through the
ranks to Eagle Scout is a strong indication of his ability to master
difficult tasks; his accomplishment will enable him to emerge as a lead-
er, fully equipped to meet the challenges of today's complex society;
WHEREAS, This new Eagle Scout is a credit to his family, his school,
his community, his State and his Nation, and no doubt his future will be
filled with accomplishments of equal importance; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations, in
recognition of the significance of this meritorious achievement, to
congratulate and honor David Francis Wolmark on achieving the rank of
Eagle Scout; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to David Francis Wolmark.
