There's no slowing Betsy Diachun, a local volunteer and business owner who was announced this week as the 2013 Senior of the Year by the Niagara County Office for the Aging.

Diachun chairs the Niagara Area Foundation of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, and has been involved in a host of civic programs — everything from delivering nutritious meals to other, less-mobile seniors as part of a home-delivered meals program, to serving as an elections inspector in Ransomville and Youngstown. 

Ken Genewick of the county said Diachun's dedication made her an easy choice for the award.

Diachun is the former assistant director of Old Fort Niagara and remains secretary of that group's Board of Directors, and is on the board of the Niagara Beautification Commission.
