Lakeside Resident Wins AARP Community Service Award

AARP Andrus Award Recognizes Outstanding Service

LAKESIDE, Calif., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bob Prath of Lakeside, CA has been selected by AARP, the nonprofit membership organization for people 50 and over, to receive California's 2007 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service, the Association's most prestigious and visible volunteer award for community service. This award symbolizes that individuals have the power and ability to make a difference in the lives of others.

AARP California selected Bob Prath for his remarkable service and for the impact he's had on the lives of others and on his community. Prath has been an active AARP volunteer since 1995. He was the Regional Mobilizer and Regional Volunteer Leader for the San Diego region, where he organized numerous volunteers around the issues important to 50+ Californians. He now serves as AARP's State Coordinator for Community Presence Teams, to increase collaboration and communication among volunteers throughout the state. Prath is also a media spokesperson, public speaker and advocate for AARP.

The AARP Andrus Award for Community Service recognizes members and volunteers who, through volunteer service, are significantly enhancing the lives of individuals age 50 and over. The award will be formally presented to Bob Prath at a luncheon on November 7.

"This award acts as a symbol to members and the public that we can all work together for positive social change," says AARP California President Jeannine English. "AARP has long valued the spirit of volunteerism and the important contributions AARP volunteers make to their communities, neighbors, and the programs they serve."

Recipients across the nation were chosen for their ability to enhance the lives of AARP members and prospective members, improve the community in or for which the work was performed, and inspire others to volunteer.
