Coffee Meet Up
Hello Rhode Island RPCVs!
I hope all of you are well and enjoying the fall. As you may have read, this past year we had the largest number of applications for Peace Corps service since 1975:
I have been working with applicants around Rhode Island and the surrounding area for more than three years now, and I am continually impressed with their talent and dedication. I’d like to invite all of you to come to an informal event I have planned in December that will be open to applicants and invitees and their families. This coffee meetup will be held on Thursday, December 3rd, 6-8pm at Café Zog, 239 Wickenden Street. Please feel free to drop in any time during those hours to say hello and meet new members of the Peace Corps community in Rhode Island. Attendees are responsible for buying their own food and drinks, but I will bring some new Peace Corps promotional items for everyone. Please let me know if you can make it.
Finally, the 55th anniversary of the founding of Peace Corps will be coming up next March. Stay tuned for announcements from the agency, and please be in touch if you have ideas to share with me for events in Rhode Island.

Last year, proceeds from our fundraiser supported Rhode Island based efforts, including the Foundation for West Africa's work with community radio stations and Edesia's nutritional food program to combat malnutrition. We also supported the Salamatu Foundation who work with teachers and provide picture books in Namibia, a sewing project in Malawi, and Project Salvador's scholarship program for students.
Thank you for your support of this fundraiser. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for other groups we may want to consider donating funds to.
