On June 5, 2014, AARP DC will lead a public conversation during the 2014 Capital Pride Week about gaining knowledge to identify caregiving and isolation resources. (Learn more about this event and register here.) Wes Morrison, an AARP DC volunteer, has learned to manage his caregiving needs and confront his feelings of isolation. This is his story.
An invasion on U.S. soil began 50 years ago when four mop-topped young lads from Liverpool landed at JFK International Airport in New York. It was spreading overseas and now America was ready for . . . the Beatles. First stop was “The Ed Sullivan Show,” broadcast live from New York on Sunday night. The audience went wild in those black and white TV days. But their first North American concert was on Feb. 11, 1964, in the nation’s capital at The Washington Coliseum where over 8,000 fans were waiting. The historic night was recreated here in Washington by “Beatlemania Now,” a tribute band that plays, acts and looks like the Beatles.
“Son of God,” a major motion picture produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, is based on the highly successful miniseries, “The Bible,” which aired on the History Channel. The miniseries garnered the highest cable television series audience in 2013. AARP offered a February Life Reimagined VIP screening of the movie in Washington, DC.
A movie or a music event? AARP DC has a number of fun and thought-provoking offerings during February that you will want to explore. Will it be a "Fab Four" tribute concert, a jazzy Valentine's Day evening for you and your sweetie, a 2014 Academy Award- nominated movie, or a documentary about marriage equality on an election ballot. Check out the details for each event. AARP DC looks forward to seeing you!
