AARP Arkansas Members Attend Evening at Ballpark

More than 230 AARP Arkansas members attended an Evening at the Ballpark with AARP on June 12, enjoying several hours of food, fellowship and minor-league baseball.

The temperature was hot and so were the Arkansas Travelers, who defeated the visiting Springfield Cardinals 8-6. Jerry Lancaster, a former AARP Arkansas Interim State President and longtime AARP volunteer, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Jerry was interviewed live during the third inning by hosts of a local sports radio show. Jerry discussed AARP Arkansas’ activities and key programs, including Universal Home Design, the Driver Safety Program, the Drive to End Hunger, and the AARP/Walgreens Wellness bus tour, which visited Arkansas in March and April of this year.

A 30-second AARP ad was shown on the giant video board at several points during the game and AARP was also recognized as a sponsor on the board and over the public address system, including broadcast of information about programs such as Driver Safety and referrals to the state website for more information. 

AARP Arkansas staff manned information booths with displays and assorted materials in multiple spots throughout the baseball park. Members were able to watch the game from a covered pavilion over right field, where food and soft drinks were served. Members also received a coupon for the ice cream dessert of their choice—a valuable commodity with late afternoon temperatures nearing 100 degrees.
