AARP honors top volunteers

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - To take their picture, they must stand still, but it's not a normal state for Charles and Frances Bennett of Baton Rouge.

They are volunteers who are so active, they seem to have been cloned because you see them in so many places at once.

That's why on Tuesday December 8, AARP honored the Bennetts for their volunteer work. They were on hand at the Main Library on Goodwood Boulevard for a presentation of the "AARP Louisiana Andrus Award for Community Service."

To only name a few, Mae McGuffery nominated the two for the award and she was there to smile glowingly as the honorees posed with her for a picture.

McGuffery, Charles and Frances are all three former WAFB Power of 9 award winners. It is the award that Capital One Bank, The United Way's Volunteer Center and WAFB give once a month spotlighted them in past years for their remarkable contribution in our community.

It is clear that the Bennetts fully intend to stay active. The light that dances in their eyes shows it's fun to help others.
