LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  Firefighter  Donald Keeler upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition after  58  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 Donald
Keeler upon the occasion of  his  designation  for  special  recognition
after  58  years of dedicated service to the Youngsville Fire Department
of Youngsville, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Donald Keeler will be honored at the Youngsville Fire Depart-
ment's Annual Appreciation Dinner and Dance, to be held at  the  Youngs-
ville 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;  Donald
Keeler  is  such  a firefighter; throughout 58 years of devoted service,
Donald Keeler 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 Donald Keeler for 58 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 Donald Keeler.
