Just in time for the new year.
State Senator Toby Ann Stavisky and State Senator Daniel Squadron passed a resolution this week commemorating the start of the Lunar New Year.
The Year of the Rooster begins on January 28 this year.
The resolution was passed unanimously.
“Being born in the Year of the Rooster is a very important sign of intelligence, honesty, ambition,” Stavisky said, “and we hope that this will symbolize 2017.”
Next week, downtown Flushing will host its annual Lunar New Year parade, which organizers say will attract 10,000 attendees.
