Letter from the President
With the end of the year quickly approaching, it’s a great time to reflect and look ahead. What do we have to be grateful for, and how can we share our thanks with the world? One of the things I am most grateful for is my experience in the Peace Corps. I love being able to share my perspective with those I meet, encouraging them to see the world in a different way. I think this is a particularly important time for us to continue sharing these experiences, and to further Peace Corps’ mission however we can.
At the holiday party on December 8, you will have a chance to help further this mission by participating in our silent auction, which raises funds to support local and international projects. It’s also a great way to get caught up on your holiday shopping! There are some truly great finds: local attractions, international artifacts, unique experiences, and more!
So that we have plenty of time to enjoy a delicious meal and each other’s company, the silent auction will only be open from 11am to noon, so arrive early and ready to shop.
We can’t wait to celebrate our biggest event of the year with you!
