Whereas, this community has witnessed blessings exemplified in acts of kindness, donations to those less fortunate and those in urgent need; and
Whereas, the Town of Nassau has been blessed for generations with brave men and women in our national armed forces and with our scores of neighbors volunteering to provide emergency services and protection for our families, our homes and our community; and
Whereas, as a community, many endeavor to serve our youth, veterans and seniors and to act as partners demonstrating hard work, friendship, service, and dedication to the public good; and
Whereas, as a nation, our Presidents have called upon a diverse people of faith and kindness to share a day of Thanksgiving to remember bounty, protection and certainly freedom;
Now, Therefore Be It Proclaimed that I, David F. Fleming, Jr., by virtue of the authority vested in me as Supervisor of the Town of Nassau in the County of Rensselaer, State of New York, and further by the unanimous consent of the Town Board of the Town of Nassau, do hereby proclaim the twenty-fourth day of November 2016 a day of Community Thanksgiving in the Town of Nassau.
