In place of the Dutch elms killed County's Senior Citizens of the Year honored By Luis Monteagudo Journal ttaff ARLINGTON - Maurice "Joe" Peattie and Helen Nixon never expected any recognition for helping their fellow senior citizens. But Friday, the two got just that, receiving Senior Citizen of the Year' awards from the Dutchess County Association for Senior Citizens Inc. Association President Franklin Hazard announced the awards to a gathering of about 200 people at the group's annual luncheon "Joe is the type who does so many charitable things because he simply enjoys life and likes to share it with people." (Lizard said "Above all, he is a very nice person." Peattie, 70, who lives in the Town of Poughkecpsie, declined to make a speech Hut before accepting the award he credited his wife, Mary, with helping him on lis projects. "If it wasn't for her, Id be lost," he said. Of Nixon, Hazard said the 63 - year - old Wappingers Falls resident has arranged many trips during her nine years of service at the Wappingers Falls center and recently joined the association's board of directors Nixon was not in attendance because she was traveling in Europe Also cited were State Sen Jay IV Holison Jr. and Assemblyman Law rence Bennett, D - 96th District, for their work on behalf of senior citizens. Other awards included plaques to Marie Tarver, director of the county's Community Development Program, and to John Henke, the association's past board president. Posthumous certificates of achievements were awarded to Dorothy Mastroianni and A. Louis Hubin, in whose memory the luncheon was dedicated. . by disease, tree crews planted t300 crab apple trees during the late 1960s. "That's" a touchy subject," Pros - pcro said of the tree that turns sidewalks slick each year wlien its fruit falls to the ground. "We're still getting calls about the crab apple trees," said Martin. The crew is plants its trees with care, taking into consideration power lines, buildings, traffic, cost and requests from neighbors. Prospero has been planting and trimming trees for the city since 1971. His training has come on the job, from forestry seminars and home study courses. On a rainy weekday morning, Prospero and Martin watched over a two - man crew removing a limb from a towering sugar maple on Adrlance Avenue. A 10 - foot - long seption of the limb Obituaries had been hollowed out by a bright red woodpecker searching for wood bores deep in the branch. "It's a full - time job just keeping up with that bird he flies faster than our crews can work" said Prospero. A woman passing by with her dog in tow tells Prospero the woodpecker has recently been heard down the street. The crew will trim hundreds of trees each year and take down another 400 or more. But it's the planting and nurturing of trees that makes the job satisfying, the crew foreman said. "I won't live to see the end of my work," he said of newly planted trees that will grow far into the next century. "There's one sure way to know when you've been on this job for a while, that's when the trees you planted are ready to come down." Peddle it!
