-A A +A

 Ken and Harriet Brooks were honored at the May 2 meeting of the AARP when Bullitt County Judge Executive Melanie Roberts made a proclamation honoring them for their many years of volunteer service to the AARP.

The couple was also presented with an engraved clock signifying their many hours of service.

Several members of the Kentucky Farm Bureau were there to help honor Ken and Harriet.

In recognition of National Volunteer Week, the National AARP office honored Lois Schoenick with a proclamation signed by President W. Lee Hammond for her community service to the chapter and to the community.

Lois was also presented with a bouquet of flowers from the chapter.

In honor of the Kentucky Derby, all ladies were encouraged to wear a Derby hat. Many beautiful and interesting hats were worn and the decision was a tough one for the three judges. But, in the end, they decided the one worn Daisy Carrier best represented the Derby with flowers, butterflies and horses on it.

Daisy was presented with a gift from the chapter.

Chapter secretary Shirley Shaw was also honored with a bouquet of flowers for National Secretary’s Week.

The next meeting of the Mount Washington AARP chapter will be on Thursday, June 6, at the Ralph Lutes Senior Citizen Center on Delaina Drive.
