To: The Honorable_________________________
Dear  ____________________,

I am writing to let you know I support the South Shore Blueway Trail, which creates a network of accessible launches for kayaks and canoes in Nassau County. Together public agencies and private citizens from local communities have joined forces to create one of New York’s finest water trails.  
Something here about your personal story and how the trail will impact you and the area. 
The South Shore Blueway Trail is generating tremendous community support and incorporates so many positive benefits to the region:
 • Furnishing safe water access to nature and recreation
 • Providing opportunities for education about wildlife and the environment
 • Delivering healthy outdoor recreation to build healthy communities
 • Fostering environmental awareness and stewardship
 • Encouraging cooperation among diverse water users
Let me close by restating that I very much support development of the South Shore Blueway Trail. This water trail is deserving of your support for the sake of quality of life, economic development and coastal sustainability. Thank you for your time. I look forward to your support of the South Shore Blueway Trail.  
 Sincerely yours,
 ___________________________________________________
