AARP Wyoming is helping to launch a state chapter of the Colorado nonprofit Miles of Smiles. The program offers rides for nursing home residents in specially made pedicabs, called trishaws, that are piloted by trained cyclists.
Two Wyoming localities are using AARP Community Challenge grants to make improvements. Jackson Hole officials will install at least three locally made benches at the Block, a 1.3-acre green space. And the Cokeville Senior Citizens Center will add ramps, replace crumbling concrete and build a new patio with no steps.
