recognize RSVP of Chemung County, for its unwavering commitment  to  the

excellence in the delivery of superlative community service; and

tions  of  such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all  the  citizens  of
the great State of New York; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
