LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring Tracy Hojohn upon the occasion of being
designated Volunteer of the Year by the  Montgomery  County  Office  for
Aging, Inc.

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to call attention to
the dedicated efforts of those individuals from across the State of  New
York  who volunteer their time and energies in service to the community;
and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Tracy Hojohn upon the occasion of being designated Volunteer of the Year
by the Montgomery County Office for Aging, Inc.; and
  WHEREAS, Since 2007, Tracy Hojohn has been  a  subcontractor  for  the
Montgomery County Office for Aging; and
  WHEREAS,  With her main concern being the welfare and nutrition of the
meals programs clientele, Tracy Hojohn is  a  compassionate  and  caring
person devoted to the needs of the elderly; and
  WHEREAS,  This  remarkable  woman's  generosity  and  caring was truly
evident when a client needed a bed and  Tracy  Hojohn  found  one,  then
delivered it and set it up; and
  WHEREAS, Again, Tracy Hojohn's caring generosity was unmistakable when
she  knew  the  Montgomery County Office for Aging needed kitchen tools,
and she located them and donated them, more than once; in her  quest  to
find the needed tools, she traveled to Johnstown, Gloversville, Schenec-
tady and Albany; and
  WHEREAS,  Volunteerism  is  an  essential element of all societies; it
provides a way in which the human values of community, caring and  serv-
ing can be sustained and strengthened; and
  WHEREAS,  During  the  past  five  years, Tracy Hojohn has volunteered
hundreds of hours above and beyond her job duties, whether it was clean-
ing and organizing the kitchen, or delivering meals, she jumped in wher-
ever, whenever needed; and
  WHEREAS, 2012 was a challenging year, and without  Tracy  Hojohn,  the
Montgomery  County  Office  for  Aging might not have made such a smooth
transition with the meals program; and
  WHEREAS, Tracy Hojohn's mission is to make sure every meal participant
receives a quality meal; she has often spoken to groups on her own  time
about nutrition and Office for Aging services; and
  WHEREAS,  Furthermore,  Tracy  Hojohn  is the Volunteer Animal Control
officer for the Montgomery County Office for Aging;  she  initiated  the
trap  and  release  program  and  believes no creature is too big or too
small; and
  WHEREAS, Volunteerism promotes family and community  solidarity;  most
importantly,  people  who  volunteer  their time in civic and charitable
endeavors inspire others to the call of volunteerism; and
  WHEREAS, It is the practice 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 volunteerism 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 Tracy Hojohn upon the occasion of being  designated  Volunteer  of
the  Year  by  the  Montgomery  County Office for Aging, Inc.; and be it
further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Tracy Hojohn.
