December 13, 2017 — AARP arranged a dinner for members and guests at the FireFlies restaurant in Del Ray, a quaint historic neighborhood in greater Alexandria. The dinner was a chance for AARP members to catch-up with each other on the busy season and introduce guests to AARP Northern Virginia volunteering opportunities. Bernice Countenay coordinated this event for 28 people, and was assisted by Nancy Crespo, Effie Upshaw, Gaile Harrell, and Reed Eldridge. This was the 5 th dinner evening offered in 2017 by AARP at FireFlies and is a companion to the dinner evenings also being held at Mylo’s restaurant in McLean, Virginia. These community events give the public a chance learn how AARP is making a difference in northern Virginia.
