Kim Richter & her husband Bob decided that it was time for the demographics of our generation to be heard
Kim Richter & her husband Bob decided that it was time for the demographics of our generation to be heard and advocated for more clearly. After much research they concluded that the CARP organization most closely met the goals of serving seniors, near seniors, Boomers and ZOOMERS! The ABC mission of CARP's Advocacy, Benefits & Community modeled somewhat on the USA AARP organization provides the unique benefit of strength in numbers throughout CANADA while permitting local CARP chapters to pursue their own priorities and goals too. Essentially the South Fraser CARP Chapter #48 started in late 2011 when Cathleen Vechiatto & Joe Zaccaria agreed to join in too and become the initial 4 member interim executive with Kim, as it's first Chair including Kim's husband, Bob. The rest is history.
