LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Angela Jones upon the occasion of her
designation as recipient of the 2013 Seneca County Senior Citizen of the
Year Award by the Seneca County Office for the Aging

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, Attendant to such concern and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Angela Jones upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of the
2013 Seneca County Senior Citizen of the Year Award by the Seneca County
Office for the Aging, to be celebrated at its Senior Citizen's Day on
Friday, May 10, 2013; and
WHEREAS, Angela Jones was recognized as a Woman of Distinction by the
Waterloo Middle School Advisement Group, showing that she has not only
made an impact in the lives of senior citizens, but also an impressiona-
ble impact on today's youth; and
WHEREAS, A loving grandmother of three, Angela Jones has attained
numerous accomplishments throughout her life, including serving as a
language teacher for 39 years, an author of many books, a respected
lecturer to retired teachers and senior citizen groups, a travel agent
specializing in senior citizen trips, the founder and volunteer coordi-
nator of the Snapettes Twirling Corporation, along with serving as an
invaluable Celebrate Commemorate Memorial Day Committee member; and
WHEREAS, As a Spanish teacher, Angela Jones traveled extensively and
brought back teachable moments and items to make learning fun for her
students; she also organized and chaperoned many Spanish Club trips; and
WHEREAS, As an author, Angela Jones last booklet is entitled, OLD
AGE...NOT FOR ME!; people of all ages are inspired when they read it and
it is perfect for all senior citizens; as a travel coordinator, she
encourages and arranges for seniors to travel not only within the United
States, but abroad as well, including Mexico, one of her favorite desti-
nations; and
WHEREAS, At age 86, Angela Jones continues to lecture around New York
State on her favorite topic "Days of the Dead"; with the Snapettes being
a very important part of her life, over the past 30 years, she has coor-
dinated the volunteers, fundraising activities, uniforms and competi-
tions; and
WHEREAS, A charter committee member of the Celebrate Commemorate Memo-
rial Day event, Angela Jones also sits on the essay judging committee
with other retired teachers, who judge the hundreds of essays submitted
by youth in grades 3-12; with all of her involvement with today's youth,
she has certainly bridged the gap between young and old alike and
through those activities, she has been an admirable advocate for senior
citizens; and
WHEREAS, A true asset to society, Angela Jones's distinguished record
merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative Body;
and
WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to publicly recog-
nize and commend those who have witnessed and contributed to the devel-
opments and achievements of our Nation, State, and communities over the
course of their noteworthy lives; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Angela Jones upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of
the 2013 Seneca County Senior Citizen of the Year Award by the Seneca
County Office for the Aging; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Angela Jones.
