      I wanted to let everyone know about an opportunity to get involved
      with a wonderful group called Engineers without Borders.

      I will highlight that you don't need to be an Engineer to involved
      (I am not). Please e-mail me if you would like to attend our meeting.

      We are looking people to become part of our group.

      The goals fall in line with many of our goals as Peace Corps

      Engineers Without Borders is a non-profit humanitarian organization
      established to partner with developing communities worldwide in
      order to improve their quality of life. This partnership involves
      the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while
      involving and training internationally responsible engineers and
      engineering students.

      The activities of EWB-USA range from the construction of sustainable
      systems that developing communities can own and operate without
      external assistance, to empowering such communities by enhancing
      local, technical, managerial, and entrepreneurial skills. These
      projects are initiated by, and completed with, contributions from
      the host community working with our project teams.

      Our meeting information for February is as Follows:
