*PLUS: Because so many came up from the South Bay last year, we've added similar parties this year in Santa Cruz (May 21) and Palo Alto (May 29th). More at www.peacecorps.gov/events. Thanks to Celia for putting together her own party in Monterey on May 11!*
The biggest wave of Peace Corps departures is just around the corner! Between June and September, dozens of local people will depart for programs in more than 60 countries. This is our annual event to honor and celebrate these newest PCVs, as well as introduce them to you, our fantastic local RPCVs. Last year, we were able to surprise some attendees on the spot with their country invitations. If possible, we will do the same at this year's events.
Our special guest, George Scharffenberger, will be there to congratulate our invitees and share updates on the exciting anti-poverty initiatives developing at the new Blum Center.
So, please join us (and thanks to those who are instead attending the Commonwealth Club's Peace Corps presentation the same evening!)
