LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring David Perkins for 55 years of dedicated

ing careers of esteemed residents of this great Empire State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
David Perkins for his 55 years of service with the Conesus Volunteer
Fire Department; and
WHEREAS, The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout
the Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the ardu-
ous field of fire protection and prevention; and
WHEREAS, Since the early days of "teapot steamers," the volunteer
firefighter has been the cornerstone of our great State's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and
WHEREAS, Volunteer firefighters and fire departments not only provide
the critical service of fire protection but also engage in other activ-
ities of great benefit and importance to the communities they serve; and
WHEREAS, David Perkins' dedication to the fire department includes
many years of service as the Treasurer of the fire department; he
checked the fire hall three times a day and tended to the building; and
WHEREAS, As a military veteran with a strong commitment to community
service, David Perkins also helped out at Town Hall and at the American
Legion Post where he was a member; 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; now,
therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor David Perkins for his 55 years of dedicated service to the Conesus
Volunteer Fire Department; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
