It's Long Island Sound Day

It turns out that today is Long Island Sound Day in Connecticut, as every Friday before Memorial Day since 1997 has been:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Subsection (a) of section 10-29a of the general statutes is amended by adding subdivision (42) as follows:

(NEW) (42) The Governor shall proclaim the Friday before Memorial Day of each year to be Long Island Sound Day to encourage citizens to acknowledge and celebrate the economic, recreational and environmental values of the Sound. Suitable exercises shall be held in the State Capitol and elsewhere as the Governor designates for the observance of the day.

Brass bands are starting to warm up for the big parades at this minute.
