mony at the Clemens Center; on April 1, 2013, the organization will
transition to the Chemung Volunteer Action Corps, where it will begin
serving volunteers of all ages in a slightly different format; and

community needs; it enables individuals 55 years of age or older to
actively participate in the life of their community through volunteer
service, thus enhancing the lives of the volunteers and the community;

recognize RSVP of Chemung County, for its unwavering commitment to the
citizens of New York, as it provides an uncompromising standard of
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
