versary of the Middleport Volunteer Fire Company and to honor its past

citizens of Middleport, New York; and
WHEREAS, The Middleport Volunteer Fire Company will celebrate this
most auspicious occasion at its Annual Banquet and Installation of Offi-
cers to be held on Saturday, April 25, 2009; and
WHEREAS, The Middleport Volunteer Fire Company was founded in 1884,
and incorporated in 1951; throughout its distinguished history, its
volunteer firefighters have proudly served the residents of the Village

communities; and
WHEREAS, Fire departments are an integral part of community protection
services in every locality of our State; during the past 125 years, the

have won the praise and respect of the community which they serve; and
WHEREAS, With a membership of dedicated firefighters, the record of
the Middleport Volunteer Fire Company in public service and fire
protection is one to be envied; for 24 hours a day, for 365 days a year,
for 125 years, whenever the alarm sounded, these noble volunteers left
their homes and went to the aid of their neighbors; and

Company are prepared to risk their lives every day to help save the
lives of others and to protect homes and property from the destruction

the history and development of firefighting over the past 125 years; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body cannot express sufficient gratitude to
those devoted individuals who recognize that the preservation of life
and property is a sacred responsibility and who make that responsibility
their own by serving as firefighters; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that we should give
special recognition to those who work so assiduously for the betterment
of their communities, and acknowledge publicly the heroic good works
performed by the volunteer fire departments of this great Empire State,
their officers and auxiliaries; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
proudly commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Middleport Volunteer
Fire Company to be celebrated on April 25, 2009; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Middleport Volunteer Fire Company.
