State Sen. Tony Avella joined Virginia Werner, Bellerose’s Miss New York Senior America 2013, to greet seniors at the Services Now for Adult Persons center in Queens Village Monday.

Werner was chosen as the winner of the Miss New York Senior America organization’s annual honoring of senior women of achievement and has been dubbed a role model of the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans, Avella said.
