Welcome to a new weekly website series where we will be sharing highlights from our week here at AARP Maine!
As we continue to celebrate the passage of Question 1 in the July 14th Maine State Primary, this week we shared a few recently published Letters to the Editor from Maine residents thanking Maine voters for voting “Yes” on 1—one from Gail in Perham, one from small business owner Paul Armstrong, and one from retired occupational therapist Rosalyn Fisher.
AARP Maine recognized two special days this week. Monday marked the 67th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, which has since been designated National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day. On Monday, we asked you all to join us in honoring the bravery and selflessness of those who defended the Korean Peninsula. Thursday, we celebrated the 55th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, programs which are crucial to helping older Mainers afford vital health care.
In other news this week, our conversation with Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah was uploaded to YouTube. The conversation was recorded live on July 9th and features questions from a virtual live audience hosted by our State Director, Lori Parham. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/_08pb8Y9x4s.
We continue to remind Mainers to fill out the #2020Census, to ensure that, for the next decade, Maine’s voice is heard in government and our communities receive the funding they deserve. Respond to the Census today online at 2020census.gov, by phone (1-844-2020), or by mail.
Lastly, check out this post for our latest scam information, titled “The Psychology of Scams.”
AARP Maine announced numerous upcoming events on our social media accounts, including our Facebook page, as well as here on our website.
