LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Firefighter Sherwood McGibbon upon the
occasion  of  his  designation for special recognition after 50 years of
dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department of Youngsville, New
York

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  Sher-
wood  McGibbon upon the occasion of his designation for special recogni-
tion after 50 years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Depart-
ment of Youngsville, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Sherwood McGibbon will be honored  at  the  Youngsville  Fire
Department's  Annual  Appreciation  Dinner  and Dance, to be held at the
Youngsville Fire Hall on Saturday, April 13, 2013; 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; Sher-
wood McGibbon is such a firefighter;  throughout  50  years  of  devoted
service,  Sherwood  McGibbon  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 Sherwood McGibbon  for  50  years  of  distinguished
service  to the Youngsville Fire Department and his community; and be it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Sherwood McGibbon.
