LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION congratulating Phillip Hartman upon the occasion
of receiving the distinguished rank of Eagle Scout, the most prestigious
of Scouting honors

WHEREAS, Phillip Hartman, through his diligence  and  rigorous  efforts,
has  achieved Scouting's highest and most prestigious rank, Eagle Scout;
an Eagle Court of Honor ceremony will be held  in  recognition  of  this
auspicious accomplishment; and
  WHEREAS,  Phillip  Hartman,  the  son of Eric and Carrie Hartman, is a
member of Seneca Waterways Council, Boy Scouts of America Troop 167; and
  WHEREAS, America has achieved her greatest heights  of  glory  through
the  dedication,  determination  and tireless efforts of the outstanding
citizens of this Nation; and
  WHEREAS, It is only with the continued diligence and devotion  of  our
youth, tomorrow's leaders, that America will maintain her glory; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Boy  Scouts of America and its members are dedicated to
the development of character and leadership in the youth of this Nation;
  WHEREAS, The highest achievement of leadership in Scouting, earned  by
only  five percent of all Boy Scouts, is the distinguished rank of Eagle
Scout; and
  WHEREAS, This outstanding young man has been involved in Scouting  for
many  years,  has  lived up to Scouting's ideals and has attained all of
the necessary achievements, including completion of a community  service
project, which was successfully planned, developed and executed; and
  WHEREAS,  Phillip  Hartman's  project  idea  began after reading about
unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning  and  hypothermia;  both  issues
affect  the elderly during the cold winter months; Phillip reasoned that
if fleece blankets were distributed to the elderly, perhaps the risk  of
carbon monoxide poisoning and hypothermia would be diminished; and
  WHEREAS,  Phillip  Hartman received donations from some fleece vendors
and contacted Walworth Ambulance Corp. and Newark/Wayne Community Hospi-
tal for their assistance in distributing blankets; he then organized and
supervised a work crew to assemble 22 blankets that were gifted  to  the
elderly in the Wayne County area; and
  WHEREAS, Phillip Hartman's perseverance in rising through the ranks to
Eagle  Scout  is  a strong indication of his ability to master difficult
tasks; his accomplishment will enable him to emerge as a  leader,  fully
equipped to meet the challenges of today's complex society; and
  WHEREAS,  This  new Eagle Scout is a credit to his family, his school,
his community, his State and his Nation, and no doubt his future will be
filled with accomplishments of equal importance; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in  its  deliberations,  in
recognition  of  the  significance  of  this meritorious achievement, to
congratulate and honor Phillip Hartman on achieving the  rank  of  Eagle
Scout; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Phillip Hartman.
