I have always loved to travel. Day trips, Sunday drives, extended vacations to faraway places - all have an element of surprise, discovery, friendship and wonder that feeds something deep within me. Everywhere you turn in Connecticut, there is a place with something to offer, a nugget to make it special, especially when viewed thru my “fresh perspective glasses.” So this blog is right up my alley.

Every year, AARP honors an outstanding volunteer who is sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members with the Andrus Award for Community Service. Do you know an extraordinary volunteer age 50 or older that should receive AARP’s most prestigious Connecticut volunteer award? The deadline is June 3 so you have exactly one month to nominate them.
AARP Connecticut volunteer Marilyn Diaz was one of four people to be spotlighted in an AARP.org post recognizing the dedication and passion of the thousands of AARP volunteers across the country. The story by Elaine Ryan, vice president of state advocacy and strategy integration for AARP, is in celebration of National Volunteer Week and also acknowledged volunteers from Hawaii, Missouri and New Hampshire.
