A core tenet of AARP is the belief that volunteer service is one of the most important and valuable contributions a person can make to their community. AARP Maine’s Executive Council is a group of volunteer leaders from Maine’s communities who hold that same core value.
Meet with AARP staff and volunteers, share ideas with community leaders and political decision makers, and build relationships within your community at AARP Maine’s Fall Social. The event will be Sept. 8, 4 to 7 p.m., at the AARP state office, 53 Baxter Blvd., in Portland. The evening will feature music, refreshments and conversation.
Every month, we host a community coffee at Bangor's Bagel Central. It's an opportunity for AARP members and community leaders to come together and learn a bit more about some of the key issues we're working on here in Maine. Sometimes local leaders stop by to say a few words and sometimes it's just a good chance to hear what's going on in the community from folks like you. Either way, it's a good time.
Every month, AARP Maine hosts a “coffee klatch” in Bangor and in Augusta to meet and greet AARP members and hear what’s on their minds and talk about local issues that need our collective attention. This is part of our effort to engage more Mainers on the issues that on local issues and in their communities. If you're in the area we hope you'll join us. These informal social events are a chance for you to meet community members, neighbors and others over free coffee in your own town. Your first coffee is on us!
