AARP Virginia is proud to announce a series of upcoming “Virtual Community Conversations” that will take place via Zoom. The first event in this series will be with VCU Health Hub at 25th on the subject of caregiving. Regardless of what stage of family caregiving you’re at—just beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a big move, or taking care of a family member full-time—having a good framework to help guide both you and your loved one will make the process easier. This virtual event will take place on Tuesday, May 26th from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and will be hosted by AARP Virginia Community Ambassador, Russell Schiavone. Registration is required and can be done here.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Singer-songwriter Tom Rush, 79, has been an icon on the folk music scene for nearly 60 years. In mid-March, he gave a telephone interview with AARP Virginia volunteer reporter Larry Lipman. Two weeks later, he announced to his fans that he had tested positive for the covid-19 virus. This story was written prior to that announcement.
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.

As an AARP Virginia volunteer, I look forward to our Movies For Grownups free screenings. From the attendance at our first movie this year, it was apparent that our attendees felt the same way. When Russell Schiavone, Community Ambassador, asked attendees to raise their hands if this was their first movie, only about 10% of attendees raised their hands. With 435 people registered and only 319 seating available, the first movie of the year, Judy, netted nearly 300 attendees at the Grandin Theater on Wednesday, January 15.
