Protecting telephone landline service and expanding options for retirement savings will top the list of issues to be discussed when AARP staff and volunteers meet with legislators on Monday, March 28, at AARP Maine’s annual Day at the Statehouse.

AARP advocates will speak with lawmakers individually and in small groups about issues important to Mainers age 50-plus. Everyone is welcome to attend.

“Even if you can only come to Augusta for a short time, your presence will help show legislators that we’re listening and are ready to stand up and be counted,” said Amy Gallant, AARP state advocacy director.

The free event includes breakfast and lunch in the Hall of Flags at the capitol. Registration is required. To register, go to aarp.cvent.com/CapitolDay2016.
