AARP-Virginia — plain and simple

With over 1000 members in Rappahannock County, AARP is actively working with a variety of organizations in the county to address wide-ranging social issues and concerns including housing and livability, hunger, social isolation, wellness and health security, financial stability, and personal fulfillment.

AARP-Virginia was proud to be among the diverse and energetic group of sponsors for “SperryFest.” Congratulations to the creative and hard-working group of planners who made the day such a rousing success.

A quick point of clarification: in its recognition of sponsors, RappNews incorrectly listed us as “The American Association of Retired Persons, Virginia office.” The association’s name was legally changed to AARP in 1999.

AARP is the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering people (of all ages) to choose how they live as they age. With over 1000 members in Rappahannock County, AARP is actively working with a variety of organizations in the county to address wide-ranging social issues and concerns including housing and livability, hunger, social isolation, wellness and health security, financial stability, and personal fulfillment.

Keep your eye on the “What’s Happening” column in RappNews for the announcement of our summer “Sip and Socialize” event at Quievremont!
