If for no other reason than that, we owe a big thank you to the good people of AARP Tax Aide who, every February, set up shop at several HCPL branches to give tax help to anyone who walks through the door and asks. The operative word there is “give.” They give their time, their expertise and their effort free of charge, and we, at HCPL, are grateful to them.
