Whereas, The arts-loving citizens of more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries freely share the making of music with others in their neighborhoods, parks, and public places on this date; and
Whereas, the residents of Burlington are arts-loving and arts-makers of music of all kinds, reflecting their diversity of background and spirit; and
Whereas the City of Burlington and volunteers of Big Heavy World encourage all people to boldy find creative expression and grow into a stronger community by sharing it; and
Whereas music is an essential human experience that Burlington is better for having, and for having a lot of; and

Now therefore, be it resolved that I, Miro Weinberger, Mayor of the City of Burlington, do hereby proclaim June 21, 2019
