icant contributions to the quality of life therein; and
  WHEREAS, From time to time this Legislative Body takes note of certain
extraordinary individuals  it  wishes  to  recognize  for  their  valued
contributions  to  the  success  and  progress  of  society and publicly

Golden Lion Award; and
  WHEREAS, Born, raised and educated in Troy, New York, Dominic Mainella
is President of Bella Napoli Italian Bakery, a family run business since
1957; and
  WHEREAS, As the business expanded in 1961, his father, John, moved the
business to its current location at 721 River Street, Troy, New York; at
that time, he expanded his product line from  bread  and  rolls  to  add
cookies, pastries and cake; and
  WHEREAS,  At an early age, Dominic Mainella had a very strong interest
in the business; he was always very involved, learning the many  aspects
of owning and operating a bakery; and
  WHEREAS,  In  1982,  the  company expanded and opened the Bella Napoli
Bakery, Sandwich & Coffee Cafe on the corner of Watervliet  Shaker  Road
and Route 9 in Latham, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  Today,  Dominic  Mainella,  along with his parents, John and
Phyllis, his brothers, Geno and Mario, his sister,  Victoria,  and  with
the  help  of  truly loyal and dedicated staff, the Bella Napoli Italian
Bakery continues the tradition of providing the finest  Italian  breads,
cakes  and  pastries  to  the  Capital Region; in 2012, the Bella Napoli
Bakery proudly celebrated its 55th Anniversary; and
  WHEREAS, As a member of the Roma Intangible  Lodge  No.  215,  Brother
Dominic  has  always  shown  his dedication to the Order by helping with
cookie and pastry donations for the many charitable functions and activ-
ities held by the Lodge over the years; and
  WHEREAS, With him throughout have been his loving wife,  Darleen,  and
their  three wonderful children, Jonathan, Michelle, and Michael, all of
whom feel privileged to be a  part  of  his  life  and  rejoice  in  his
achievements; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the quality of life in their community and have shown a long and
sustained commitment to the  maintenance  of  high  standards  in  their
profession,  certainly  have  earned the recognition and applause of all
the citizens of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it

honor Dominic Mainella upon the occasion of his designation as recipient
of the 2012 Golden Lion Award; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
