The annual Andrus Award is the highest honor a volunteer can receive from AARP. This award, as well as awards in a number of significant community categories, honors those who make a powerful difference in their community.
Throughout the journey of caregiving, well- defined and well-managed personal boundaries are a blessing to caregivers and care receivers. Boundaries are necessary behavioral constructs if we are to have healthy relationships with other people. We need to be aware of where we end and the other person begins. Boundaries serve to protect both persons, honoring and respecting each individual. Well-conceived and well-managed boundaries are ultimately a blessing to all involved in the journey of caregiving. Please join us to learn how to establish, to manage, and to maintain mutually beneficial boundaries within your family and with clients or service providers. Please register online.

Are you new to your community — or maybe just looking for ways to get more involved? Why not check out an AARP chapter near you! For example, the Black Forest Chapter is involved in fighting fraud! This will be the 10th year Chapter 1100 has co-hosted this event. Last year 15,800 pounds of paper was professionally shredded and recycled. The 371 individuals, from 18 different postal ZIP Codes, who took advantage of this opportunity to reduce their likelihood of being victimized by a scam or ID theft by taking advantage of our service, also donated 610 pounds of nonperishable food and $1,123 in cash to the Black Forest food pantry. Learn more about the Black Forest Chapter on their website.
