Retirees in Action

Albany County Executive Dan McCoy presents Judy Tambasco, center, retired teacher, and Roz Moser, retired school nurse; with Citizens of the Month certificates to honor their volunteer work. For 20 years, Tambasco and Moser have volunteered to run the 1,000 Book Child reading program for young students at Berne-Knox- Westerlo school district. The pair started the program to encourage youngsters to read, and each week participating students are given a bag of 10 books to take home.
