LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Brendan Corrigan upon the occasion of
his designation as the 2013 Junior Firefighter of the Year by the Mineo-
la Junior Fire Department

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to act, in accord with
its long-standing traditions, honoring the youth of today, and leaders
of tomorrow, whose character and achievements best exemplify the ideals
and values cherished by this great State and Nation; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Brendan Corrigan
upon the occasion of his designation as the 2013 Junior Firefighter of
the Year by the Mineola Junior Fire Department to be celebrated at its
12th Annual Juniors' Installation Dinner at its Department Hall in
Mineola, New York, on Saturday, April 27, 2013; and
WHEREAS, 15-year-old Brendan Corrigan resides in Williston Park with
his parents, Frank and Maureen Corrigan, his brother, Tim and his
sister, Deirdre; he is a sophomore at Kellenberg Memorial High School in
Uniondale, New York, where he is a member of the woodworking club as
well as a violinist in the orchestra; and
WHEREAS, Brendan Corrigan is an exemplary member of the Mineola Junior
Fire Department who is always at hand when there is work to be done, no
matter the task; his work ethic, initiative and willingness to go above
and beyond what he is called to do have earned him the respect and admi-
ration of his peers; and
WHEREAS, Outside of his work with the Mineola Junior Fire Department,
Brendan Corrigan is very active; he is an altar server and assistant
teacher of religious education at Corpus Christi Parish, works at State
Farm Insurance as an intern, and runs his own shoveling business; and
WHEREAS, Brendan Corrigan keeps his Irish heritage alive by playing
the Irish fiddle and tin whistle, and has made a tradition of playing
tunes for the fire department after the Mineola St. Patrick's Day
Parade; and
WHEREAS, Brendan Corrigan enjoys cooking; he dreams of attending culi-
nary school and becoming a chef in his own restaurant; and
WHEREAS, The advisors and members of the Mineola Junior Fire Depart-
ment are extremely proud of Brendan Corrigan and look forward to his
joining the ranks of the Mineola Volunteer Fire Department in the
future; and
WHEREAS, It takes a special dedication, a strong desire to help others
and a tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with family
and friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need; Brendan
Corrigan desires to be such a firefighter; and
WHEREAS, Poised eagerly with enthusiasm and determined purpose, this
Junior Firefighter now stands honorably, with just pride in his accom-
plishments and in eager anticipation of future challenges, understanding
and appreciating the caring counsel and support provided by Senior Fire-
fighters, mentors, and his parents; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Brendan Corrigan upon the occasion of his designation as the
2013 Junior Firefighter of the Year by the Mineola Junior Fire Depart-
ment; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Junior Firefighter Brendan Corrigan.
