AARP DC cordially invites you to come to an upcoming neighborhood chat for coffee and casual conversation about what’s happening with the growing 50+ population in DC. We are making a stop in every ward, so please come by!
There are over 30,000 veterans living in the District of Columbia, and AARP DC deeply values their service and sacrifice. We want to do a lot more to support the needs of local veterans aged 50 and older through resources and advocacy.
In cooperation with The Beacon newspaper, AARP DC is cosponsoring the Beacon Celebration of the Arts contest for amateur artists 50 and older in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The contest has four categories—painting, photography, poetry, and sculpture/3D (including pottery, jewelry, textile arts and more).
On the evening of February 22, 2018, Richard Charles Jones Crutchfield entered into eternal rest. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Crutchfield and our hearts go out to his family and friends. He was an outstanding and inspirational human being and leader who was the quintessential model for living your best life after 50.
AARP DC volunteers play a critical role in our efforts to help the District’s 50+ live their best lives. The impact our volunteers have on this work cannot be overstated. Through letter writing, attending hearings, giving testimony, participation in rallies, and various other activities we are able to serve the 50+ community on issues that matter most to them.
