AARP program needs volunteers

Monday, January 16, 2012

To the Editor:

One of the significant demographic facts affecting America at the present and in the future, is the aging of its population.

The proportion and number of persons age 50-older has grown and will continue to grow more rapidly than other age groups.

Independence and mobility are two important aspects of one's life. Each becomes more important as a person ages.

The AARP Driver Safety Program was created to help older drivers enhance both.

Older drivers benefit from the program through increased confidence on the road, a better driving record, the potential for lower insurance rates and a mobile, independent lifestyle for additional years.

AARP is currently seeking potential organizations to host an AARP Driver's Safety class in your area, and also interested participants.

Hosting organizations find that helping to provide an AARP Driver Safety Program course enhances their public image as a service-minded community leader and creates community goodwill.

AARP is a non-profit organization and the Driver Safety Program is managed and presented by all volunteers.

Those interested should call 812-605-0731.
