AARP Night at the Ballpark will be held on July 14 at Bank of the James Stadium, 3180 Fort Avenue

Lynchburg, VA 24501. Gates open at 6 p.m. for the 6:30 p.m. game time. AARP Virginia is sponsoring free shredding from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. with a shred truck in the stadium parking lot. Area residents can bring documents containing sensitive personal information, such as old tax returns or banks statements, to be securely shredded. Shredding documents containing personal information is an important part of avoiding identity theft.

The first 200 AARP members in attendance will receive a free meal in AARP’s 3rd Base Picnic Area and Party Deck.
