Fundraising - Calendars: It is the time of year to replace your wall
calendars. Why not get an International Calendar by the Returned
Peace Corps Volunteers of Wisconsin, Madison? This year's calendar
is a new design and is titled "Harmony in Play". If you were to
order a single calendar from Madison it would cost you $10. CIRPCA
is selling the calendars for $6.00 each (Rich's estimation is that
we will make $0.50/each if we sell 50 and $1.00/each if we sell
100). Besides passing the bulk savings on to you,[add a comma here]
any proceeds after shipping and handling will go to CIRPCA Peace
Corps week activities, such as Peace Corps related items to give to
the students to whom we talk, to purchase items to share in the
school presentations, etc. Your ideas are welcome for this!
A picture of the cover of this beautiful calendar that makes a
perfect Christmas, Channukah, Kwanza or birthday gift is located
under the picture section of this site. Buy several! Please e-mail
your orders to Rich Sitler rsitler@...
with "International Calendar" in the subject line. In the e-mail
indicate the number of calendars, your address and a phone number in
case I have any questions. Payment will be taken by check once you
receive your calendars.
The International Calendar project seeks to share Peace Corps
experiences with our home communities and to raise money for
grassroots projects in the countries where we served or in which we
live. The images of the Calendar will introduce you to the people
who welcomed us so warmly into their communities.
Database on the CIRPCA web group: On the webgroup is a database,
pictures, and polls section. Feel free to add your information to
the database, upload pictures, and participate in the poll
(currently the poll is about whether you are a member of the NPCA).
