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.
