Albert Schneider is well known in Western New York...especially for playing his harmonica and performing at senior homes, nursing homes and for church groups.

Years ago Al toured with Ted Mack, a spin-off of the Major Bowes Amateur Hour, as one of the Five Harmonica Jacks. He even played in Warm Springs, Georgia and entertained the then President and First Lady—Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.

After retiring form Westinghouse, Al became active with AARP, where he held many New York State positions. After 21 years he is being honored by having been elected to serve as a voting delegate to the 1998 Biennial AARP Convention in Minneapolis in June.

He will again be contributing to a worthy cause as well as traveling...which he also loves.
Al has also been a pioneer board member of AGING IS FOR EVERYONE—A Channel 7 feature.

We are proud to salute this dynamic “seasoned” citizen...who is ageless.
