If you had the chance to help a neighbor, solve a community problem or advocate for a cause you care about, would you do it?

AARP VA will offer a free session on Thursday, August 22, 2013 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library. You will learn about issues affecting Virginians age 50+ and how to join a community of people working to make a difference through AARP and our partner organizations.

Through AARP you can use your experience, talent, and creativity to make an impact in your community — and meet some new friends along the way! As an AARP volunteer, you can direct your passion for making a difference to enhance the quality of life for people 50+ in the Fredericksburg area through education, advocacy or service.

Like you, AARP cares about the whole Fredericksburg community. So we also work with selected local community organizations to offer a range of great volunteer opportunities. If volunteering for AARP doesn’t fit your interests, we are sure one of our community partner organizations will be a great fit.

AARP was founded on the energy, efforts, and commitment of volunteers. Today AARP continues the vision of its founder and first volunteer, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, offering ways for people to channel their skills and interests to serve their communities. Come learn how you can get involved.

The event is free. Refreshments will be provided. Preregistration is requested. Call 1 (877) 926-8300 or go tohttp://aarp.cvent.com/TakeActionFredericksburg  to register today.
