WHEREAS, The Capital District Senior Issues Forum (CDSIF) is a grass-
roots, voluntary initiative among faith communities, organizations and
individuals that provides support for seniors in the Capital District;
and
WHEREAS, Founded in 1998 as a pilot program at Albany's Westminster
Presbyterian Church, CDSIF's founding forum members included caregivers,
representatives from different faith communities who saw advocacy for
older adults as a mission of their faith community, government officials
concerned about senior issues, housing administrators, senior service
providers, as well as seniors themselves; and
WHEREAS, Through education and dialogue, the Forum identifies issues
and unmet needs of the senior community, serves as the convener of
stakeholders to address issues through forums, legislative programs, and
educational programs, educates the community about issues affecting
seniors, and generates the support of faith communities for health,
healing, and wholeness of older adults; and
WHEREAS, Since 1998, the Forum has held over 16 ceremonies and has
recognized the contributions of over 676 seniors over the age of 85 for
their Lifetime Achievements; and
WHEREAS, Veva Bangert has been recognized by the Capital District
Senior Issues Forum for being an extraordinary senior, for making a
difference in the lives of others, and for giving selflessly through her
caregiving; and
WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual for the benefit of others which Veva Bangert has displayed through-
out her life; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that those who
enhance the well-being and vitality of their community and have shown a
long and sustained commitment to excellence certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Veva Bangert upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of
the Caregiving Lifetime Achievement Award by the Capital District Senior
Issues Forum on October 7, 2015; and be it further

smitted to Veva Bangert.
