We’re writing with an important message to let you know that we have canceled our external events until further notice. While convening events is a core part of our mission, we have changed our approach in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to two great theatre events in July, and enjoy AARP Utah discounts on your tickets! We want to make sure you enjoy fun connecting events with us, so are offering these opportunities to AARP members and their guests. Here are the details:
I don't really know what it means to age gracefully. I started rock climbing on my 59th birthday and was hooked. At 60 I climbed a 1000 foot peak in the Wind Rivers. Honestly, I climb BIG mountains with friends half my age and, with few exceptions, they are just as tired at the end as I am. I'm not an athlete or in that great of shape but what I do have is the will. The will to climb, and the will to continue when I’m in pain or uncomfortable. The will to believe I can succeed when it seems impossible. The "will" is free to everyone regardless of age.
In the first of its kind in the nation, an AARP Smart Driver course was taught to deaf students at the Sanderson Center in Taylorsville, Utah on Monday, November 14.

AARP Utah is very proud to announce that our State Director, Alan Ormsby, was named one of the “Enlightened 50” (E-50) by Utah Foundation. As explained by the Foundation, each year they recognize fifty individuals who are making a measureable – but often unsung - difference in the lives of Utahns through innovation, collaboration and commitment to the common good.
Doesn't dancing under the stars to music provided by top Utah big bands such as City Jazz, Caleb Chapman's Crescent Super Band, Wasatch Jazz Project, Tad Calcara & New Deal Swing, 23rd Army Band and the Joe Muscolino Band sound like a great time?

Big Band Summer at the Gallivin Center will run every Tuesday night throughout June, July, and August.
To our readers: The AAA Fair Credit Foundation is based in Salt Lake City and is a partner with AARP Utah on teaching how to save and plan for the future. This is one story about a family they helped through their Individual Development Accounts Program. We thought it was a heartwarming example of what planning for the future can do for a family.
