Chapter Membership

South Coastal DE AARP Chapter 5226 is a membership organization for active adults ages 50+, representing AARP at the local level.

Our members come primarily from the communities of Bethany Beach, Clarksville, Dagsboro, Fenwick Island, Frankford, Lewes, Millsboro, Millville, Ocean City (MD), Rehoboth Beach and Selbyville, but members are welcome from anywhere.

It’s easy to become a chapter member.  The only prerequisite is membership in the national AARP.  The membership year runs from September through August.  Members who join from May through August are counted as members both for the current and upcoming membership years.


Our membership dues are $10 annually.  If you wish to receive the Chapter’s newsletter by U.S. mail (rather than email), there is an additional charge of $3.  Multiple Chapter members in a single household need pay only one $3 fee if they choose to receive the newsletter by U.S. mail.

We welcome new and renewing members.  Please return a completed application form with your annual $10 (email) or $13 (U.S. mail) membership dues per person (checks only), payable to South Coastal DE AARP Chapter #5226 to: Dottie Rieck, P.O. Box 286, Bethany Beach, DE  19930. Phone: (302) 539-2654 Email:
