To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1011), to designate Wednesday, March 9, 1994, as "Children with Disabilities Day", to endorse the "B.A.C.-Coffee Day for Children with Disabilities" project, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
DEWITT WILLIAMS, for Committee.
TO DESIGNATE WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1994, AS "CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES DAY", TO ENDORSE THE "B.A.C.-COFFEE DAY FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES" PROJECT AND OTHER OUTSTANDING PROGRAMS OF LIFE ABILITIES, SOUTH CAROLINA SOCIETY FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES, INC., AND TO PROVIDE FOR A JOINT SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AT 12:00 NOON ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1994, AT WHICH TIME THE STATE LIFE ABILITIES REPRESENTATIVES AND THEIR PARENTS WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
Whereas, Life Abilities has again embarked upon its most worthwhile project to raise funds for children with disabilities, culminating in the forty-second annual "B.A.C.-Coffee Day for Children with Disabilities" in South Carolina on Good Friday, April 1, 1994; and
Whereas, under the statewide leadership of Edwin W. Fisher, State Life Abilities President, ably assisted by Captain James Braddock of the South Carolina Highway Patrol who is State President of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, John L. Caudle, II, Executive Director of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, Thomas L. Sponseller, Executive Director of the South Carolina Restaurant Association, and Skip Condon, State President of the South Carolina Restaurant Association, this program is destined to raise thousands of dollars to aid our very deserving children and assist them in overcoming their disabilities; and
Whereas, the "B.A.C." buttons go on sale Wednesday, March 16, 1994; and
Whereas, the "B.A.C." project and all other programs of Life Abilities deserve the support, merit, and praise of all citizens of the State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That Wednesday, March 16, 1994, is designated "Children with Disabilities Day" in South Carolina and that Mark Thigpen, son of the Reverend and Mrs. Paul D.

Be it further resolved that the General Assembly extends to Life Abilities and its many dedicated supporters its sincere wishes for continued success in its many constructive and compassionate programs on behalf of persons with disabilities.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the executive director of Life Abilities, for distribution to the state chairmen of the various phases of the Life Abilities campaign and the "B.A.C." project, and to the State Life Abilities Representatives.
