NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY & NEW YORK'S SUFFOLK COUNTY OFFICIAL PROCLAIM "WORLD TAI CHI & QIGONG DAY" FOR THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND SUFFOLK COUNTY
A record breaker like no other this year. This true even with the heavy and steady rain that forced our event indoors! We had eight facilitators from across Long Island (previous record: Seven). Over 90 people attended the various workshops (previous record: 70).
We were also visited by Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, NY State Assembly 3rd District and the Honorable Brian X. Foley, Suffolk County Legislation 7th District. Ms. Eddington presented us with a resolution from the NYS Assembly recognizing the benefits of T'ai Chi and Qigong, the importance of World T'ai Chi & Qigong Day, and the fifth anniversary of the event in Patchogue. Mr. Foley presented us with a proclamation from the NY Suffolk County Legislature also recognizing the benefits of the arts and the importance of the worldwide event. This is the second proclamation we have received from Suffolk County; the first was in 2003.
The attached presentation photo (From L to R) is Patchogue Event Coordinator Laurince McElroy, NYS Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington, and NY Suffolk County Legislature Brian Foley. The other attachments are two group photos from the unfolding of the morning and scanned copies of the county and village proclamations. I will send a scanned copy of the resolution after the first of the week. Color copies will be headed your direction in the near future.
Although not in attendance the Honorable Paul V. Pontieri, Jr., the mayor of Patchogue, issued a supporting proclamation from the village. This is the third proclamation we have received from Patchogue's mayor and Trustees in as many years. The first, in 2003, was issued by the previous mayor, the Honorable Edward A. Ihne.
