LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring Valerie Osborn upon the occasion of her
designation as recipient of the Volunteer  of  the  Year  Award  by  the
Horace J. Inman Senior Center in Amsterdam, New York

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 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
Valerie  Osborn upon the occasion of her designation as recipient of the
Volunteer of the Year Award by the Horace  J.  Inman  Senior  Center  in
Amsterdam,  New  York;  this  auspicious  occasion was celebrated at the
Center's recognition dinner on Friday, April 25, 2014; and
  WHEREAS, A graduate of Amsterdam High School, Valerie Osborn works for
Fidelis Care, an organization which occasionally sponsors events at  the
Horace J. Inman Senior Center; and
  WHEREAS,  After  finishing  work one day, Valerie Osborn stopped by to
visit the Center; this would be the beginning of  a  long  and  fruitful
relationship; and
  WHEREAS, This esteemed woman became Chairman of the Board of Directors
at the Horace J. Inman Senior Center, a position in which she has served
admirably; and
  WHEREAS,  Valerie  Osborn  has  dedicated  countless hours to planning
events and fulfilling the needs of senior citizens; her  leadership  has
been vital in helping elderly people in taking part in the Center's many
fun activities, including Zumba, yoga, and line dancing; and
  WHEREAS,  Throughout  the  entire  period  of her community service, a
period of constructive involvement, Valerie Osborn has stood constant in
dignity, good grace and humor; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual for the benefit of others which this remarkable woman has  displayed
throughout 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  Valerie  Osborn upon the occasion of her designation as recipient
of the Volunteer of the Year Award by the Horace J. Inman Senior  Center
in Amsterdam, New York; and be it further

smitted to Valerie Osborn.
