It’s not too late to join ARRP

by Harold Hall

Is it too late? No! Now is the time to join ranks, senior citizens, by becoming a member in the Carson Valley Chapter, American Association of Retired Persons, according to public relations representative Harold Hall.

“Too many senior citizens feel that belonging only to the National AARP will protect their interests,” he said. “Not so. The Carson Valley Chapter is not just a social organization, but is dedicated to community service. You must belong to the chapter to help accomplish this. A show of strength will attract attention to the purpose of AARP – to serve the community.”

At the last board meeting of the chapter, held in January at the Douglas County Public Library, President Harlan Casebier outlined a tentative program for approval, which included speakers for the general meetings and the formation of a “55 Alive” class for safe driving.

“By attending the general meeting Thursday, Feb. 5, the membership will learn of many valuable plans, both for community service and fun activities – such as the overnighter in Yerington and the annual spaghetti dinner,” Casebier said. “Also, we have Bob Jones, office manager for U.S. Rep. Jim Gibbons, explaining to us how tax laws affect the senior citizen.”

Vice President Paul Harr said that attending the meetings was well worth the effort.

“A strong AARP chapter commands respect from all senior citizens in the Valley,” he said.
