CLAREMONT, CA Each year the City of Claremont’s Senior Program recognizes its outstanding volunteers. For 2017, Judith Jones, Director of Sales and Marketing was chosen as the recipient of the Josephine Smith Award, which recognizes an individual who makes outstanding contributions toward the enrichment of the lives of Claremont’s seniors. This award is one of four prestigious awards given each year at the annual Claremont Senior Volunteer Recognition. All awards are perpetual and kept in the library at the Joslyn Center.
Judith is the Director of Sales and Marketing at Claremont Place Senior Living and passionate about senior enrichment. Amongst her many contributions, she energetically serves on the City of Claremont Committee on Aging, where she helped launch the first Intergenerational Life Story Program, bringing teens and seniors together to record seniors’ stories. Along with her fellow Kiwanis volunteers, she provides hands-on support for a range of Senior Program events and services, including the monthly Food Bank, Scam Stopper Breakfast, and Mingle & Munch.
In addition, Judith serves on the Speaker’s Bureau for the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater LA. She truly exemplifies the spirit of joyfully serving older adults. When she’s not volunteering, people might find her in the office at Claremont Place where she continues her enthusiasm for supporting the senior community. Judith has resided in Chino Hills since 2001.
The Josephine Smith award honors Josephine Smith, a published author who wrote about the elderly, most famously in the column, “On Aging,” for the Claremont Courier. She is an example of finding your voice, and the impact you can have on the community, in later life.
The mission of the Claremont Senior Program is to advocate for individuals ages 55+ and facilitate their access to a full range of programs, activities, and services that enrich their lives, and to actively promote a just and equitable intercultural society that fosters positive human relations.
