Volunteers the Backbone for AARP Chapters

2014 SW Waterfront Chapter Officers-resized

The leadership for AARP Southwest Waterfront Chapter #4751 has been hard at work designing interesting meeting programs and community service events. Volunteers are the foundation for successful AARP chapters nationwide, especially here in the Washington, DC area. That's why AARP DC salutes the active AARP chapter volunteer leaders throughout the District.


Leaders from the AARP Southwest Waterfront Chapter #4751, pictured from the left are:
Betty Jean Tolbert Jones, president; Evelyn B. Dorsey, vice president; Julia Lindsay, assistant secretary/treasurer; Inez Davis, membership; Ethel Davis, amenities; Elaine Graves, public relations; Wanda Peace, hospitality and Joan King, hospitality.  Not pictured: Paul Leddy, secretary/treasurer;  Dorothy Bryan, legislative; and Kathleen Byrd, hospitality.  Andy Litsky, AARP-DC Executive Council member and chair for ANC 6D Commission, installed the 2014 officers and committee chairs from the AARP Southwest Waterfront Chapter #4751, at its first meeting of the year in January.

About AARP Chapters

AARP members (age 50 and older) and their spouses are eligible for chapter membership. The first AARP chapters were organized in 1960. By 1961, over 100 chapters were organized. Today, there are over 1,400 AARP chapters across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. A minimal yearly fee is charged to help run the business of the chapter. Some chapters have fund-raising activities to help support local senior projects, provide scholarships for students, or donate money to worthy causes.
