tutions that give positive definition to the profile and disposition of
the communities of the State of New York profoundly strengthen our soci-
ety with their commitment; and

standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to congratu-
late the Sagtikos Manor Historical Society upon the occasion of cele-

suburban area; and

ty contracts with the county to give tours of Sagtikos Manor and to
cooperate in its restoration; and
