Last month our board and our local Peace Corps recruiter, Chris Lins, met for our annual retreat to prepare 2021. We have a milestone event this year - The Peace Corps 60th Celebration! We are in the process of coordinating local Peace Corps celebration events. If you are interested in taking part at any level please do let us know. We would welcome your ideas and/or service!
On that note, if you are interested in spending an hour or two a month volunteering with the FCRPCV board please let us know. We are currently looking for volunteers to help with our advocacy, service projects, and communication efforts.
As the Covid Vaccine begins to roll out on the First Coast so does the hope of us all once again getting together for our Celebrations and Happy Hours... Perhaps in the Fall!
A little housekeeping note... We have had a handful of FCRPCV members create duplicate memberships with an alternate email. This has happened two ways: someone renews their membership with an alternate email, or someone logs in with a new username and an alternate email. If you happen to forget your log in info, please reach out to us and we will promptly send you a link to reset your password.

Finally, the start of 2021 brings more opportunities for us to support our mission. The Biden administration has proposed to significantly increase the number of refugees admitted to the U.S.. This allowed for our Signature Project, which aims to promote meaningful interaction between refugees and U.S. citizens, is now able to return to our events calendar. Please stay tuned for our upcoming Signature Project events that will foster shared understanding, tolerance and peaceful coexistence to honor the third goal of Peace Corps.
With Peace, Love and Light,
