Peace Corps people celebrate 50 years

October 6, 2011

All Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs), RPCVs (“Remaining” Peace Corps Volunteers) and present and former Peace Corps staff in Costa Rica are invited  to an unofficial 50th anniversary casual gathering Saturday at 2 p.m. at Mac’s American Bar and Grill, in western San José’s Sabana Sur neighborhood. No RSVP needed – just come on down. If you want to get on “the list” (to be shared with everyone), email your contact information to third-year PCV Dina Navar at dina.navar@gmail.com.

Please tell all RPCVs you know about this event and bring contact information for RPCVs in Costa Rica you know who cannot attend. If you want to sign up for the Friends of Costa Rica RPCV group and receive its newsletter, write to rpcv.costa.rica@gmail.com.
