The American Association of Retired People announces its first ever winner for the Community Challenge Grant, and the winner, is right here in Ohio.

AARP awarded McComb with a $20,000 grant. The money will be used to improve the quality of life for people of the community. The grant will also help fund age-friendly enhancements to McComb's community park, like adding park benches around the walk paths and the reservoirs. Manager of Outreach and Volunteer Engagement at AARP Ken Davis, says he's excited to see how the park turns out when it's finished.

I just want to come back and see when they get this equipment installed so I've asked them to invite me back because theirs was one of the more interesting and more creative grant applications that we've ever received and we want to congratulate them on doing a great job," said Davis.

The park is set to be complete in about two months.
