Beginning in January, the chapter will shift its programming to the theme of Living Well. This website will undergo some revisions at that time consistent with the new theme. The content will remain the same, but the layout and the color scheme will change. We will launch the new look sometime in December.
This site is devoted to Blacksburg AARP and its mission "to serve, not to be served." Chapter history, governance, and public service activities are described on this site. Should you wish to join our efforts, an application for membership is included.
