house resolution no.197

Reps. Coleman, Haadsma, Liberati, Rogers, Sneller and Weiss offered the following resolution:

A resolution to declare November 28, 2021, as Albanian American Heritage Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, On November 28th, 1912, Albanian hero, Ismail Qemali, quickly gathered delegates to Vlora, Albania, to approve the Declaration of Independence and secure Albaniaís status as an independent nation free from foreign control or influence; and

Whereas, Independent Albania, a lifelong dream of a people subjected to hundreds of years of occupation, the All-Albanian Congress constituted a National Assembly to join the world as a modern nation-state; and

Whereas, The Declaration of Independence concurrently witnessed the raising of the modern Skanderbeg flag signifying the existence of a unified and independent Albania; and

Whereas, Michiganís Albanian American citizens enrich our communities and bring their unique culture and traditions to our great state; and

Whereas, Members of the Albanian American community contribute greatly to this state as business owners, skilled professionals, community leaders, and engaged citizens; and

Whereas, November 28th, 2021 marks the 109th anniversary of the realization of an independent Albania; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare November 28, 2021, as Albanian American Heritage Day in the state of Michigan. We thank those individuals of Albanian heritage for the important contributions they have made to our state and our country.
