Oscar Night in Sioux Falls

AARP in Sioux Falls hosted over 230 AARP members and guests at a fun red carpet event last Friday night to celebrate the Oscars and to discuss the importance of Medicare in South Dakota.

Volunteers shared great information about why Medicare is important to them, and how turning the program into a voucher system could hurt low-income seniors in our state. More that half of the attendees took action - filing out 129 petitions that have been sent to Congress, urging them to keep Medicare strong and affordable!
