On September 23rd, AARP will present its 2013 Maryland Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors 50+ Marylanders who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.

“AARP Maryland is excited to shine a light on 50+ Marylanders who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said State President and lead volunteer Clarence “Tiger” Davis.

Nominations were evaluated by a panel of expert community partners based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced at a gala luncheon event at the Hyatt Cambridge on September 23.

All AARP volunteers are invited to the luncheon and arrangements for transportation to the event can be made.  For more information, contact Christy Page by email or by calling her at (410) 895-7614.

The AARP State Andrus Award for Community Service is an annual awards program developed to honor individuals whose service is a unique and valuable contribution to society.  Last year, AARP recognized 52 outstanding individuals from around the country, with Dr. Gene Gary-Williams, of Prince George’s County, taking home the Maryland Andrus Award for Community Service.
