after 60 years of service to  the  Cazenovia  Fire  Department  and  its
Ladies Auxiliary

WHEREAS,  Individuals  who  give  of their time and energy and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS, Jean Schelah has generously given not only of  her  time  and
energy  but  also  of  her  competence,  intelligence, and leadership on
behalf of her community for many years; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is proud to commend Jean  Schelah  upon
the occasion of her designation for special recognition by the Cazenovia
Fire  Department  for her many years of dedicated service to the Depart-
ment and the Ladies Auxiliary; and
  WHEREAS, She will be honored at the Department's banquet to be held on
Friday, February 1, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, Historically, the ladies auxiliary of a volunteer fire compa-
ny has been organized to assist, support, and encourage the fire company
in its good work; it is the aim of the ladies auxiliary to  cultivate  a
spirit  of harmony, to promote sociability and to sustain the esteem and
admiration of the community in which it serves; and
  WHEREAS, The Cazenovia Fire Department Ladies  Auxiliary  carries  out
these  important  functions in an exemplary manner, providing an invalu-
able service to the department and community; and
  WHEREAS, Cazenovia Fire Department members truly appreciate the  women
of  the  Ladies  Auxiliary,  knowing they will always be there providing
food and refreshments, as well as emotional  support,  to  them  on  the
scene of emergencies; and
  WHEREAS, It takes a special dedication, a strong desire to help others
and  a  tireless  sense of community to volunteer selflessly, supporting
and assisting the firefighters in the provision of fire  protection  and
prevention; and
  WHEREAS,  For 60 years Jean Schelah has willingly and enthusiastically
helped the Ladies Auxiliary carry out its accepted responsibilities  and
has contributed extensively to the awareness and knowledge of her neigh-
bors and friends, and to the quality of their lives; and
  WHEREAS,  Throughout the years she has always been one of the first to
volunteer to help with any or all functions; she  has  always  supported
the  Department  in everything it does in addition to serving on various
committees throughout the years; and
  WHEREAS, The Cazenovia Fire Department will proudly honor  Jean  Sche-
lah,  recognizing  this significant milestone at its banquet on February
1, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, Jean Schelah's mother Marie was  a  founding  member  of  the
Auxiliary;  Jean  joined  the  organization  in July 1953 when she was a
teenager and proudly carried  the  banner  on  numerous  occasions  when
marching with the Auxiliary in parades; and
  WHEREAS,  Through  her  long and sustained commitment to the Cazenovia
Fire Department and its Ladies Auxiliary,  Jean  Schelah  has  exhibited
outstanding  service  and  leadership  in  her beloved community and has
demonstrably advanced the perception of Cazenovia, New York, as a caring
and united community; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  the Cazenovia Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and to pay trib-
ute to Jean Schelah upon the occasion of  her  designation  for  special
recognition  by the Cazenovia Fire Department for 60 years of service to

the Cazenovia Fire Department  and  its  Ladies  Auxiliary;  and  be  it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Jean Schelah.
