Dave Beal Among AARP MN / Pollen "50 Over 50"
Dave Beal has been recognized as one of the AARP MN & Pollen 50 Over 50 Honorees. The 50 Over 50 list recognizes and celebrates the courageous, compassionate, and selfless acts of service by Minnesotans over the age of 50 who are giving their all as they care for others, reimagine their careers and businesses, and give hope to our communities. He is nominated in the "Community" area of impact that regonizes individuals working to make their communities stronger by volunteering, organizing, or serving in public office.
His citation reads that he "wants to redefine the role of citizen. What could a community look like if every resident felt a responsibility to ensure that the places we live can sustain us and to act when they don’t? The answer might look something like what’s happening in Beal’s community of Rochester. With a well-earned reputation for advocating for older adults, Beal, 68, was asked to facilitate the work of a community-based group promoting social and economic justice in Rochester. Together, they formed In the City for Good, an ongoing collaborative effort to give every citizen a voice in the issues that affect them. Beal also played a central role in bringing Olmsted County into the AARP network of Age-Friendly States and Communities."
