Do you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older?  Show your appreciation by nominating him or her for the 2014 AARP Utah Andrus Award for Community Service.  The annual Andrus Award for Community Service is AARP’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award.  It recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s mission, vision, and commitment to volunteer service, and that inspire others to volunteer.  It is named for AARP’s founder, Ethel Percy Andrus, who devoted her post-retirement life toward ensuring that older people had the needed services to live their lives with dignity.
