Washington County AARP Chapter #2266



The American Association of Retired People (AARP) was found in 1958 by retired educator Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus. She selected the motto, “To serve, not be served,” and set forth four goals: (1) to enhance the quality of life for older persons; (2) promote independence, dignity and purpose for older persons; (3) to lead in determining the role and place of older persons in society; and (4) to improve the image of aging.

It is the above motto and goals that the Washington County Chapter #2266 of the American Association of Retired People (AARP) wanted to live up to when it formed its chapter in 1974. The first minutes of the Chapter #2266 were recorded in 1976. As of 2001, the Washington County Chapter #2266 was still functioning.
