Here we are in the dreary month of February, but at least we have Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day to look forward to.
The Campbell Area AARP Chapter 5151 members should be very proud. Together we managed to accrue 3,091.75 volunteer hours of service in 2020. That is 187 hours more than we accumulated in 2019. Considering the fact that many of our activities had to be conducted virtually, that is outstanding. Many thanks to Leona Fails for doing the massive job of adding all those hours up. In February, the National AARP will be accepting nominations for the National Community Service Award. We should try to have a nominee.
As I mentioned at the January meeting, a student at Harker Academy, Arthur Kajiyama, has set up a group of students to make phone calls to seniors who would like to be contacted once a week by telephone. If you are interested in receiving a phone call from a teenager, please send an e-mail (preferably) to Joy Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org or at her phone number(s) listed on Page 3. There are two adult mentors for the group.
Hopefully, we will be able to meet in person after March.
