Lois Solomon Elected Gwinnett AARP President
Lois Solomon has been elected and installed as the 2013 president of the Gwinnett Chapter #2714 AARP, Inc.
Solomon has been an active member of the AARP organization for more than 16 years and is no newcomer to fighting for the rights of seniors and community enhancement.
The Dacula resident is a champion of human rights. She is a heritage activist, historian and social worker whose beliefs exemplify the AARP mission and vision of a society in which everyone ages with dignity and purpose and in which AARP helps people fulfill their goals and dreams.
As president she will strive to increase the visibility of the chapter and advance the programs and activities of AARP, supporting it with goals and objectives set across a range of functions.
“Our mission is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all as we age. We lead positive social change and deliver value to members through information, education, advocacy, social needs and service. We provide a link at the local level between members, communities, and AARP’s programs and service,” Solomon said.
AARP is a well-respected organization that helps people 50-plus have independence, choice and control in ways that are beneficial and affordable to them and society as a whole. The National AARP was founded in 1958, and the Gwinnett Chapter #2714 was incorporated in 1976.
The Gwinnett AARP Chapter meets the fourth Thursday of each month at the Delmar Gardens Senior Center, located at 3100 Club Drive, Lawrenceville, GA. Membership is open to anyone with a current National AARP membership card. Our motto “To Serve, Not to be Served” is key to making a positive difference in our community.
