As I begin this Blog, we are in the middle of the Summer and on another day of 100 F.  Thank goodness the a/c is working and I can write this issue under the overhead fan in my bonus room.  Don’t know which I prefer more, the dog days of Summer or the below freezing days of Winter.  One thing I dislike about the weather is when I get caught up in a howling wind and it’s raining.  Being wet and cold are far worse than hot temperatures.

A favorite summer-night pastime is returning to Boise, with Idaho Botanical Garden’s weekly Great Garden Escape concert series, set for June through August.
Every single day, AARP Idaho volunteers fuel our work in communities across the Gem State. Without the hundreds who donate their time, skills and passion, we wouldn’t have enough capacity to help older Idahoans transform their lives. If you would like to learn more about our volunteer opportunities we encourage you to reach out and discover all of the unique opportunities at AARP Idaho.
