LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring David Perkins for 55 years of dedicated
service to the Conesus Volunteer Fire Department

WHEREAS, It is the intent of this  Legislative  Body  to  recognize  and
acknowledge  the significant milestones in the distinguished fire fight-
ing careers of esteemed residents of this great Empire State; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
David Perkins for his 55 years of service  with  the  Conesus  Volunteer
Fire Department; and
  WHEREAS,  The  firefighters  of New York State are renowned throughout
the Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence in the  ardu-
ous 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  State's  efforts  to
spare us from the ravages of fire; 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,  David  Perkins'  dedication  to the fire department includes
many years of service as  the  Treasurer  of  the  fire  department;  he
checked the fire hall three times a day and tended to the building; and
  WHEREAS,  As  a military veteran with a strong commitment to community
service, David Perkins also helped out at Town Hall and at the  American
Legion Post where he was a member; 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;  now,
therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor David Perkins for his 55 years of dedicated service to the Conesus
Volunteer Fire Department; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to David Perkins.
