LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Arlene Brown upon the occasion of being
selected as Columbia County's 2013 Senior Citizen of the Year

WHEREAS, Senior citizens bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to
the increasingly active roles they play in today's society; their past
contributions and future participation are a vital part of, and valuable
asset to, the fabric of community life and activity; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Arlene Brown
upon the occasion of being selected as Columbia County's 2013 Senior
Citizen of the Year, in recognition of her invaluable contributions to
the community through her outstanding, and much appreciated, volunteer
work; and
WHEREAS, As Columbia County's 2013 Senior Citizen of the Year, Arlene
Brown will participate in the Annual New York State Senior Citizens Day
Luncheon, hosted by the State Office for the Aging (SOFA), at the Hart
Theatre Lounge in the Egg, Albany, New York, on Tuesday, May 7, 2013;
and
WHEREAS, The theme for this year's event, Unleash the Power of Age,
recognizes the potential energies of older individuals which can be
unleashed through civic engagement to address pressing social and commu-
nity needs; and
WHEREAS, Arlene Brown, who lives in Columbia County with her devoted,
energetic dog in the same house where she was born 92 years ago, is
active in an impressive range of community endeavors while being known
for her irrepressible good nature, enthusiasm, and contagious can-do
attitude; and
WHEREAS, Arlene Brown mentors middle school students, provides trail
maintenance and office assistance to the Columbia County Land Conservan-
cy, and volunteers at the circulation desk at the Hudson Area Library;
and
WHEREAS, In addition, Arlene Brown volunteers at the nearby Greenport
Conservation Area as a Public Conservation Area monitor, where she picks
up trash, prepares birdhouses, and keeps an eye out for issues that need
to be addressed by the Columbia Land Conservancy; and
WHEREAS, A true asset to society, Arlene Brown's distinguished record
merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative Body;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Arlene Brown upon the occasion of being selected as Columbia Coun-
ty's 2013 Senior Citizen of the Year; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Arlene Brown.
