September Potluck in Saratoga National Historial Park

One of the unique things of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Northeastern  New York is our monthly Potlucks.  As you probably know, on the first Tuesday of every month, returned Volunteers gather together at different locations in the Capital Region  These potlucks not only serve as social gathering to reminisce and eat, but also, as informative meetings of upcoming fundraising events, community activities, and learning experiences.  This particular potluck, we met up at the sweet Saratoga National Historical Park with Superintendent, Amy Bracewell.  Presentation topics included history of the National Park Service and then question and answer.  To round up, a rainbow joined us at the event.
