SPOTLIGHT ON THE HONORARY BOARD
If you don’t know her personally, chances are you or someone you know has been touched by some program or human service that she has either founded or had a hand in helping to run smoothly over her 60 year long (and counting) career of community service.
is one of CNY’s greatest treasures and her invaluable wealth of wisdom and experience has had a positive influence on AURORA of CNY since she agreed to help out as a clerical volunteer for the agency, then known as The Lighthouse, back in 1946. And she’s been “helping out” ever since.
In the dictionary next to the term “mover and shaker” you will find Amelia’s picture. She has served as president of AURORA’s Board of Directors and has stepped in to take the helm as AURORA’s unpaid interim Executive Director during unexpected transitions. As a member of our Honorary Board, Amelia is active on our Stewardship Committee. Among her other list of accomplishment are that she was the founder of Home Aides of CNY and has served on countless non-profit projects and boards including the Board of Trustees for Loretto.
Her uncompromising common sense, high standards for excellence and a passion for getting the job done defines her spirit and when asked what her personal motto would be, Amelia immediately responded “Quit messin’ around!”
Thank you Amelia for sharing your life and talents with AURORA of CNY, Inc.
