Mayor Daley called seniors the 'backbone of America' as he praised new members of the city's Senior Citizen Hall of Fame. The mayor said senior citizens made a difference and displayed Chicago's 'I will' spirit.

The seniors were inducted Saturday at the city and park district's 41st annual Senior Citizen of the Year awards luncheon.

Mayor proclaimed Saturday Senior Citizens Day in Chicago.

One of the new Hall of Fame members is Burt Natarus, who served nine terms as 42nd Ward alderman.
