Irene Belt of Buffalo is an adventurous 72 year-old who makes the most of every day. Some of her activities include Tai Chi, line dancing, walking and gardening. She gives back to others by being first in line to lend a helping hand whenever it’s needed. From helping friends with their daily chores or trips to the doctor, to canning fruit or creating a colorful clown outfit, Irene tackles every challenge enthusiastically.

Irene eagerly hands down her knowledge, wisdom and creativity to second generation nieces with tea parties, knitting lessons and joyful weekly visits to play house.

There’s no doubt about it, Irene Belt lives for the moment and to her that’s what life’s all about.
