According to Marla Johns of the Orcas Senior Center and Susan McBain of the Medical Foundation, the AARP course will take place entirely indoors at the Orcas Senior Center, in a classroom, and there is no driving involved.

The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. An optional lunch can be pre-ordered for $5. To register and order lunch, call 376-2677.

According to Marla Johns, all who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion. Enrollment will be limited to 30 participants.

“No driving involved and no tests to pass,” McBain said.

AARP points out that the amount of insurance savings is up to each individual insurance company.
