AARP Chapter 1917

Ocean City, Maryland
Since 1974

Volunteers Wanted

All of our chapter’s officers, board members, committee members, as well as any chapter member working to enrich the lives of our members and help our chapter function, are all non-paid volunteers!   More help is always needed and appreciated.  Please review the following chapter committees and projects to see if you can participate.


Annual Health Fair Support

The annual Health Fair project is always looking for volunteers to help on both set-up day (the day before the Health Fair) and on the day of the Fair. To volunteer for this project, please contact, Helen Norris, 302-436-1784.


Hospitality Committee

This committee is responsible for providing those wonderful snacks for our monthly meetings.  Volunteering does not mean that you have to help with every meeting; any help would be appreciated by all.  To help, please contact Donna Reid, 301-518-4187, or email her at pdreid2010@comcast.net.   


Nominating Committee

This committee is responsible for finding a slate of qualified candidates for any forthcoming elections.  Because of varying terms of office, election activities may vary from year to year.  This committee is usually active August through October.  To volunteer for this committee, please contact the chairperson, John Lucas, 302-988-1489.

Scholarship Committee

This committee is responsible for awarding the annual scholarship our chapter presents to a deserving high school senior at Stephen Decatur High School. The committee reviews the applications, interviews prospective candidates, and awards the scholarship to the most deserving applicant.  The committee meets several times each year.  To volunteer for this committee, please contact the chairperson, Mary Jo Breslin, 240-447-3848.

Tax-Aide


The AARP Tax-Aide program helps low-to moderate income taxpayers have more discretionary income for everyday essentials by assisting with tax services and ensuring they receive all applicable tax credits and deductions. You can sign up now for the next tax season, and training and certain reimbursements are provided.  This is another good way of helping your neighbors and you'll even understand your own tax return better.  To volunteer for this program, please contact Bob McCluskey at 410-250-0980.  The District Coordinator position is vacant at this time.     

Travel Committee

The Travel Committee works very hard to bring you interesting and reasonably priced trips, in both the Delmarva area as well as out of the area. Members do extensive research and trip evaluation, interact with travel service companies, and often act as a Trip Leader on a trip.  Activities and committed meetings occur throughout the year, but decline somewhat during the months of July and August.  If you enjoy traveling and interacting with other people, have basic computer skills (email, etc.), please contact the chairperson, Sandy Kvech, 443-664-2003.
