    Brewster, N.Y. – 04/29/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) has officially accepted the nomination of June Offermann from Brewster into the 40th Senate District 3rd Annual Women of Distinction Hall of Fame.

    Created and hosted by Senator Ball, The Women Of Distinction Hall of Fame was designed to honor outstanding women from throughout the 40th Senate District. Towns, villages and cities district-wide have selected one nominee that will be honored at a ceremony on May 29th.

    “The Women of Distinction Hall of Fame was created to honor women that have chose a path of leadership, living a life of service before self,” said Senator Greg Ball. “I am so happy to accept Brewster’s nomination of June Offermann into the hall of fame. June plays an essential role for the senior citizens in Southeast, keeping them active, social and healthy. I salute her for the wonderful work she does and I greatly look forward to recognizing her work at this year’s hall of fame ceremony!”

    “I consider it both an honor and a pleasure to help my fellow citizens, and hope to continue to do so as long as they let me,” said June Offermann of her service as the President of the Southeast Seniors. “As leaders are supposed to do, we bring information and programs to our seniors through various speakers which we hope will make their lives easier and more interesting. There are so many changes these days with regard to both health and finance that it is very hard for the average person to keep up with all of them, and so I serve as a conduit for these new developments. It is also most beneficial for seniors to be out and about in the social realm so as to remain vital and connected to their peers.”

    After graduating business school, June became an Executive Secretary. She married and nurtured two wonderful children. She became very involved with the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H Youth Development Organization, was the Vice President of the local PTA, and for 13 years was a member of the Huntington Community First Aid Squad on Long Island.

    June moved to Brewster to be closer to her daughter’s family. Soon after joining the Southeast Seniors, she became their Recording Secretary and currently serves as the President of the program. June has also thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in such programs as the Triad, Yellow Dot, bracelets for Alzheimer’s patients, as well as a project involving a new senior center for Brewster and Southeast. June has also received the 2005 Putnam County Community Service Award.

    The Women of Distinction Hall of Fame Ceremony will be hosted on Thursday, May 29th at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor in Mahopac from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. For more information about the Women of Distinction Ceremony, contact Senator Greg Ball’s office at (845) 279-3773.
