Boomers And Others: Volunteer Fair July 25

Arlington is sponsoring a volunteer fair for Baby Boomers and other experienced adults. Are you a 50+ person who wants to give back to society somehow? Go check this out.

When; Wednesday, July 25 from 10am to 12 noon
Where: Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy Street in Ballston

From the Arlington DHS site:

As the first wave of the Baby Boomer generation starts to retire, the possibilities for their increased community involvement are endless. There are more than 60 million Americans over age 50 today — a number that will increase by more than 50% in the next 25 years. Never before have so many people had so much knowledge–and so much time to use it.

The Arlington Volunteer Office is partnering with RSVP, AARP, and the Department of Libraries in presenting the “Sail into Service” Volunteer Expo, where more than 20 local nonprofit agencies will be on hand to encourage people over 50 to “get engaged all over again” through volunteerism.

There is no charge for the Volunteer Fair on July 25. Refreshments will be served. For further information, please contact the Volunteer Office at 703-228-1760.
