LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Charles "Chuck" Mellon
upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition after 51
years of dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company

WHEREAS, The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout the
Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the arduous
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 Nation's efforts to
spare us from the ravages of fire; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Firefighter Charles
Mellon upon the occasion of his designation for special recognition
after 51 years of dedicated service with the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire
Company of Queensbury, New York; and
WHEREAS, Charles Mellon, a retired machinist at Sandy Hill Corp., has
served the Bay Ridge Volunteer Fire Company as Chief and is currently
the company's President; 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, 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; Charles
Mellon is such a firefighter; throughout his 51 years of devoted
service, Charles Mellon has heroically performed, above and beyond the
call of duty, those responsibilities which define the task of fire
protection; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Firefighter Charles "Chuck" Mellon for 51 years of distinguished
service; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Charles Mellon.
