Annual Summer Picnic

Our annual summer picnic was held on July 12th at Bob Crowley’s house in Poestenkill. 25-30 people were in attendance, including RPCVs, one current PCV, husbands and wives, and plenty of friends and family. A good time was had by all as we ate, drank, swam, and talked the day away. Until next year, everybody!

Where are you calling from?

Below is a graphical look at where our recent web traffic has come from. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of visitors are from with in the US. But there are some surprising countries on this list, some that have never had Peace Corps too!

These statistics are from the launch of our new site in April 2012 to present.
