AARP, the American Association of Retired Persons, has a way of startling people turning 50 by sending them an unsolicited AARP card in the mail.
The usual reaction is, “But, I’m too young for an AARP card!” followed by, “How did they know?”
The cards are for people, not organizations. Otherwise Hemlock Farms would have received one this year.
Both Hemlock Farms and Lords Valley Country Club celebrate 50 years in 2013 and will celebrate with a dinner gala to be held at the country club in June.
A committee of volunteers has organized a wide variety of social events geared for all ages culminating in December. Details are still to come.
