Citizen of the Year, in recognition of her invaluable contributions to
the community through her outstanding, and much appreciated, volunteer
work; and

McDonald will participate in the Annual New York State Senior Citizens

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

actively engaged in helping others at the fine age of 91, and is undet-
erred in her zest for life and helping others; and

ing up with a thoughtful card or visit; and
