JANUARY MEETING



WANNA GET RID OF STUFF? 



AARP CHAPTER 5239 CAN HELP


by Madeline Salustri, Publicity Chair



Is your “stuff” taking over your home? Is it stressing you out? Are you having a difficult time giving away your “valuable stuff” because no one wants it? Michael D’Ostilio, AARP State Volunteer, can help! Mike, who presented programs to Locust Grove AARP Chapter 5239 last year, will present a new program

on Decluttering on Monday, January 20th.

Mike retired from the U.S. Army in 1995 and from the Federal Government in 2015 where he served as the Chief of Investigations, Assistance, and Hot Line Branch for the Army Inspector General Agency. He was also the Senior Instructor at the Army Inspector General School where he developed curriculum and monitored instruction.

Mike began working with AARP as a legislative volunteer in 2016 and has participated both at the
state and federal level talking with legislative officials on healthcare and caregiving initiatives
affecting seniors.  He is also a member of the AARP Virginia Speakers Bureau and has presented
topics on Brain Health and Home Fit.  In 2017, Mike was presented with the AARP Virginia Rookie of
the Year Award.


Decluttering and Downsizing is a new topic available through AARP.  Having too much stuff can
impede people from relocating or getting health care into their homes. Cleaning out your house
while you can, is a gift and inheritance you can leave your children. So, come and learn from Mike
how to get started! Join us in the Clubhouse Grand Hall for breakfast treats at 9:30. The meeting
begins at 10 am.
