The City of Manning applied to become part of the age-friendly network of AARP.
The Manning community has age-friendly policies, all-age inclusion on decision-making teams, and projects being built that support people of all ages (i.e. trails, senior living, etc).
Manning joins 4 other communities in Iowa: Des Moines, Charles City, Marion, and Cedar Rapids that are a part of the network.
Through this network, Manning is given networking/training opportunities, and can use this designation in marketing materials, and is given a higher priority when applying for AARP grants.
Normally AARP does an event to welcome the community to the network, but given COVID they did the billboard instead.
