In 2016, we have seen a remarkable surge in the efforts of Maine towns and neighborhoods to advance age-friendly initiatives. About 18% of Maine’s population lives in one of the 24 communities that have joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. In an age-friendly community, residents benefit from an environment that encourages them to remain active and socially engaged in an enjoyable setting. By adopting such features as safe, walkable streets, better housing and transportation options and more opportunities for residents to participate in community activities, cities and towns can become great places to live for people of all ages.
We are getting ready for the election season and we need YOU! AARP Maine is recruiting volunteers to help with nonpartisan outreach to voters across the state on issues such as health care and retirement security. All volunteers will be fully trained and readied to help us run voter workshops, staff tables at events, speak to community groups and help coordinate a voter bus tour in the fall to listen to Mainers across the state.
