Valley Viewpoints: Giving back to the community

by Jan Rebeor of Fulton

Last month I had the pleasure of meeting Senator Patty Ritchie when she informed me that I would be awarded the 2012 Woman of Distinction from her district.

I want to thank Senator Ritchie for this award and would also like to take this time to send out a huge “thank you” to everyone for their congratulations.

It has been a wonderful couple of weeks with Tony and I going to Albany for a formal presentation by Senator Ritchie at the Legislative Chambers attended by all the other awardees and then most recently another ceremony in Watertown where all the nominees in her district were honored.

I love what I do for the City of Fulton and truly believe that everyone should give back to the community they live in. I have been lucky to have been included over the years in many of the City of Fulton and Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce events.

I have made many friends through my participation in these events and have lots of good memories.

So, I thank the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber for their nomination and Senator Patty Ritchie for giving this award to me. It was truly appreciated. My congratulations also goes out to all the other nominees, all of whom are well deserved.
