Gae Crosby Selected Apalachin Lions Club Woman of the Year


The Apalachin Lions has announced that Gae Crosby was selected for Apalachin Club Woman of the Year.
Gae’s recognition is the result of her activities within Tioga County and her focus has been the Special Olympics.
Gae serves as the Special Olympics Group secretary and Training Director for the Broome-Tioga organization, which encompasses more than twenty-five training clubs and seven hundred athletes with disabilities.
She coaches weekly soccer, bowling, volleyball, and track and field.
She helped introduce bocce to the organization, which is now the fastest growing sport.
Gae’s community contribution has been within the Tioga County Historical Society, an organization where she served as president of the Board of Directors.
Her signature accomplishment was the introduction of “Oh Tannenbaum”, a project where donated decorated Christmas trees are auctioned off.
This project was nursed through eight years of growth, becoming the prime holiday attraction in Owego and raised $20,000 of badly needed funds for the museum.
Gae has served on other boards within the county, and she continues to serve those in need within the Special Olympics Group.
