Our 2019 Andrus Award Winner, Martha LaFleur, has a saying, “if there’s a will, there’s a way.” That is exactly how she looks back on her career as an art educator. She started at Keene State College as an art education major until the school moved the program away.

It is an honor to announce that this month’s Volunteers of the Month are Ruth-Ellen and Ken Mason. The married couple became interested in AARP after attending an event that was announced in the Union Leader in March 2013. Held at the Puritan Backroom in Manchester, the guest speaker was Dick Umile, a Men’s Hockey coach for UNH. It was at this event that Ruth-Ellen and Ken realized the scope of AARP and they began to volunteer shortly thereafter.
