Brownwood Recreation Center

AARPCV celebrated its Second Quarter Potluck & Bon Voyage Event at the Brownwood Recreation Center in East Atlanta on Saturday April 20, 2013.  Over 50 people attended, including an array of guests - RPCVs, Peace Corps staff members, prospects considering the application process, nominees awaiting an invitation to serve, and invitees who will soon embark on their 27-month journey as Peace Corps Volunteers (PCV).  AARPCV extends its gratitude to the Peace Corps Southeast Regional Office for its collaboration in this event.
As part of the overall 30th Anniversary theme, the second quarter potluck focused on Africa. The 30th Anniversary Timeline Project was promoted as well, a physical clothesline-style display of significant events in AARPCV history.  Members are encouraged to contribute to this timeline throughout the year.

Various RPCVs brought food reflective of the region, and tables were brightly decorated with traditional African cloths. RPCV musician
Adam Klein (Mali, 2002-2004) shared his talents by performing traditional Malian music from his album “Dugu Wolo.”  AARPCV members and guests alike enjoyed the medley arranged by Adam and extend a huge thanks to him for his gracious participation in making this event a success.

Additionally, AARPCV members present at this potluck approved funding for two projects by unanimous vote. The first project is an AARPCV t-shirt fundraiser, while the second project will help fund a Georgia PCV’s latrine project in the Zambia through the Peace Corps Partnership Program (PCPP).

The next AARPCV event is a community service event, hosted by Global Growers Network at Bamboo Creek Farm on May 4, 2013. Also, please be sure to save the date for the June 8th Summer Social!
