President Bill Darce reminded everyone of the need for volunteers. St. Mary AARP provides many activities for members and the community, but more volunteers are needed to help make ambitious goals into a reality. He urged residents 55 or older to join the local chapter and become an “AARP volunteer, we need your help, too,” he said.
