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.
After much ado and much delay (sorry about that) here are the results from the 2016 RPCV NENY Membership Survey. Those of you who were able to attend our April meeting received these results and the presentation attached, but for those of you who weren’t they are here below. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
