WHEREAS,  The firefighters of New York State are renowned throughout the
Nation; their reputation is synonymous with excellence  in  the  arduous

Elmore  upon  the  occasion  of  his designation for special recognition

to  be  celebrated at its Annual Banquet on Saturday, April 26, 2014, in
Sparrowbush, New York; 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

making him the top responder for the Sparrowbush Engine Company; and
  WHEREAS, Presently, Charles Elmore is the Captain of the Fire  Police,
and one of the oldest active fire policemen in New York State; and
  WHEREAS,  A  life  member  of  the Sparrowbush Engine Company, Charles

and friends to respond to the signal that a neighbor is in need; Charles

this volunteer heroically performed, above and beyond the call of  duty,
