WHEREAS, Senior citizens bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to
the increasingly active roles they play in today's society; their past

ciated, volunteer work; and
WHEREAS, As St. Lawrence County's 2013 Senior Citizen of the Year,
Loretta Sharpstene 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, Loretta Sharpstene was born in Clare, New York, and now
resides in Russell, New York; a nurse, she, along with her husband,

teer makes shawls, sweaters and hats for low income seniors, and
provides transportation for many seniors to recreational functions; and
WHEREAS, A true asset to society, Loretta Sharpstene's distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
