[ARCHIVED] County Honors Contribution of Senior Citizens

A group of Senior Citizens and Area Agency on Aging staff members pose with the County Commissioners

Nearly 30 percent of Wayne County’s population consists of those ages 60 and older, yet only a fraction of those who are eligible for meals, transportation and a myriad of other enrichment, education and wellness programs take advantage of them. In May, Pennsylvania marks Older Americans Month and a group of seniors and members of the Area Agency on Aging staff received a proclamation from the County Commissioners. Chairman Brian Smith said today seniors “built what we enjoy every day.” However, said Commissioner Wendell Kay, they’re not searching for a rocking chair, but rather ways to stay active. “They have plenty of connecting, creating and contributing left to do,” he said. Pictured from left are: seated – Stuart Skinner, James Byrnes, Shirley Ostrander, Aging Director Mary Ursich, Advisory Council member Sara Burgin and Bernice Russell; standing –Commissioners Wendell Kay and Brian Smith, Leigh Washington, Will Magann, Cathleen DeGarzia, Commission Joe Adams, Lisa Gilbert, Monique Orr, Advisory Council member Barbara Sprovkin, Lauren Janusewski, Sierra Lord, Integrated Services Specialist Dave Hartung, Maggie Hicks, Human Services Agency Deputy Administrator Lori O’Malley and HSA Administrator Michelle Valinski.
