AARP Wyoming Offering Free Boxes of Cheer - A List Of AARP Events

Group of Diverse Multi Ethnic Cheerful People Celebrating with t

AARP Wyoming is offering boxes of cheer to those who could use a pick-me-up and is asking for the public’s help in nominating those who could use a smile.

AARP Wyoming asks the public to nominate their boxes-of-cheer recipient using this form. Each box of cheer contains AARP goodies, games, household items and even a small gift card.  The boxes are free and are being sent in hopes of helping to diminish the impact of social isolation during the pandemic.

“There is nothing better than receiving a note or small gift unexpectedly,” says AARP Wyoming State Director Sam Shumway. “These boxes of cheer are a free, fun way to put a smile on someone’s face.”

The boxes of cheer are one of a number of AARP Wyoming events taking place this winter. Among the other events which are free, and available to all are:

  • Cheyenne Historian Mike Kassel will talk about his latest work written in conjunction with Starley Talbott, the book, “A History Lover’s Guide to Cheyenne,” at 6:30 p.m. on March 17.  Kassel will delve into the many unique landmarks that have given the community its special visual character. Rare photographs from the Wyoming State Archives and fresh exposures capture Cheyenne in vivid detail. To register for this free, virtual event, click here.

  • Over the next six months, AARP Wyoming will offer a series of free virtual fitness classes, including: Chair Yoga; Stretch, Strength, and Balance; Line Dancing; Tai Chi Qigong and Restorative Yoga. The events are open to the public and you don’t need to be an AARP member to participate.
