The Maumelle chapter of the AARP traveled last Saturday to the Choctaw Casino in Pocola, Okla.

The proceeds from the trip, $1,060, were donated by Away We Go Tours and owner Betty Hall to the AARP chapter in Maumelle.

Hall is a member of that chapter.

The money will be used towards the chapter’s community service projects. Among the projects to be funded are: art supplies and books for the schools; support to the Maumelle Parks and Recreation Department and the Maumelle Senior Citizens Department.
