WHEREAS, the Cahaba Lilly Festival, which includes the election of a Miss cahaba lilly and the presentation of the Cahaba River Society's coveted Cahaba Vision Award, has indeed earned the admiration and respect of those persons who have had the privilege of enjoying this gala annual celebration; now therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA, BOTH HOUSES THEREOF CONCURRING, That the cahaba lilly Festival of West Blocton, Alabama, is recognized on the celebration of its 10th Anniversary on May 29, 1999, and, by copy of this resolution for appropriate display, extended best wishes for continued success in future endeavors.
