August 1st Lake Party

The Greater Birmingham Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (GBRPCV) are co-hosting a delightful summer lake party on Smith Lake on Saturday, August 1, 2015 with Southeastern Outings. You are hereby invited to attend! You are also welcome to invite friends and family members you think would enjoy this event.

The goals of this party are to offer all participants a relaxing, fun day of lakeside activities and to provide information on the Peace Corps to those party participants interested in learning more about the Peace Corps. We are hopeful that some who attend will eventually submit their applications to serve as Peace Corps Volunteers overseas.

Those who attend will include:

– Returned Peace Corps Volunteers
– Prospective Peace Corps Volunteers
– Those having a general interest in the Peace Corps
– Erica Wherry, Peace Corps Regional Recruiter from the Peace Corps Regional Office in Atlanta and
– Other folks with an “international outlook” or general interest in international experiences

Erica will have materials on the Peace Corps to hand out. Both Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and Erica Wherry from the Regional Peace Corps Office will be available to discuss the Peace Corps with interested attendees and answer questions.

Included below are descriptive details of the event.
