About four years ago, AARP DC’s Shepherd Park Chapter #2667 decided it needed to communicate with its members and others in other ways than newsletters, email and telephone tree. Under the guidance of chapter member, Donna Graham, who created the site and is webmaster, Shepherd Park Chapter #2667 has been able to share pictures, newsletters, special events and senior resources.

About AARP Chapters
AARP members (age 50 and older) and their spouses are eligible for chapter membership. The first AARP chapters were organized in 1960. By 1961, over 100 chapters were organized. Today, there are over 1,400 AARP chapters across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. A minimal yearly fee is charged to help run the business of the chapter. Some chapters have fund-raising activities to help support local senior projects, provide scholarships for students, or donate money to worthy causes.
