AARP Virginia Announces 2023 Andrus Award Winner


Bobby Horne has been selected to receive the 2023 AARP Virginia Andrus Award for Community Service, the organization’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.

Horne was selected for his remarkable service, which has greatly benefited his community in Yorktown and surrounding areas, reflected AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. Horne exemplifies the creed “to serve, not to be served” with his volunteer service across multiple organizations, including Peninsula Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) Council, TRIAD and Hampton Roads Coalition on Aging.

The award will be formally presented to Horne during a ceremony at the Peninsula S.A.L.T. Council’s 26th annual Senior Safety Summit in Yorktown on October 17. AARP Virginia will also make a $1000 donation to Peninsula Agency on Aging in honor of Horne.

“This award acts as a symbol to the public that we can all work together for positive social change,” says AARP Virginia State Director Jim Dau. “AARP has long valued the spirit of volunteerism and the important contributions volunteers make to their communities, neighbors, and the programs they serve.”

Recipients across the nation were chosen for their ability to enhance the lives of AARP members and prospective members, improve the community in or for which the work was performed, and inspire others to volunteer.

Horne was previously recognized with AARP Virginia's President's Award in 2022.
