Connecticut Volunteers Honored for Community Service

Find out who received top honors in 2012

AARP’s founder, Ethel Percy Andrus once said: “We learn the inner secret of happiness when we learn to direct our inner drives, our interest and our attention to something besides ourselves”. Our 2012 Andrus Award for Community Service winner, Peter Brady (better known as “the Handy Dandy handyman”), embodies that sentiment and has made it his mission to help improve the lives of others in his community and beyond. The prestigious Andrus Award is AARP’s highest volunteer honor.
