Day of the Cowboy in New York State

WHEREAS, In the course of American history, the patriotism of the citi-
zens of this great country has become embodied in revered symbols of
loyalty, strength and determination; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to recognize Saturday,
July 26, 2014, as National Day of the Cowboy in New York State; this
auspicious occasion will be celebrated by the Painted Pony Rodeo at
their 2nd annual Ranches, Rodeos & Wranglers Weekend on July 24-27,
2014, in Lake Luzerne, New York; and
WHEREAS, In 2004, AMERICAN COWBOY magazine launched the National Day
of the American Cowboy campaign as a way to acknowledge and preserve the
heritage, history and culture of America's Cowboys and Cowgirls; and
WHEREAS, Pioneering men and women, recognized as "Cowboys," helped
establish the American West; the Cowboy embodies honesty, integrity,
courage, compassion, respect, a strong work ethic, and patriotism; and
WHEREAS, The Cowboy archetype transcends ethnicity, gender, and
geographic boundaries; they are excellent stewards of this country's
soil and its creatures, and live off of the land to protect and enhance
the environment; and
WHEREAS, Cowboy traditions have been a part of American culture for
generations; they continue to be an important part of the economy
through the work of countless ranchers in all 50 of the United States
that contribute to the economic well-being of nearly every county in the
Nation; and
WHEREAS, Cowboys are central figures in literature, film, and music
and occupy a central place in the public imagination; and
WHEREAS, True American icons, the ongoing contributions made by
Cowboys and Cowgirls to their communities should be recognized and
encouraged by all; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
recognize Saturday, July 26, 2014, as National Day of the Cowboy in New
York State; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Painted Pony Rodeo.
