The North Dakota Legislative Assembly only meets every other year. However, during the “interim,” legislative committees will study a wide array of important issues. AARP will be closely watching issues important to North Dakotans 50 and older.
AARP North Dakota is seeking nominations for its Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors North Dakotans 50 and older who share their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of others.
Ellen Schafer of Bismarck has been appointed to the AARP North Dakota Executive Council, and Dr. Michael Worner of Fargo has been reappointed to the Executive Council for a second two-year term.
AARP North Dakota is looking for volunteers to work with state legislators on issues such as caregiving, health care access, transportation and property taxes.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide offers free tax filing help to anyone, especially those 50 and older, who can’t afford a tax preparation service. Tax-Aide volunteers make a difference in their communities by assisting many older, lower-income taxpayers who might otherwise miss out on the credits and deductions they’ve earned.
Vel Rae Burkholder of Fargo will be presented with the 2018 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service during a volunteer recognition luncheon Oct. 4 in Fargo.
