Event Description

This year, the Peace Corps is celebrating its 50th anniversary.  That’s why we have asked a panel of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) to describe their Peace Corps service and offer their views on the value of the Peace Corps to host countries and American society. 
Will either of these need or want the Peace Corps in the future? 
The Peace Corps at 50:
Will you still need me when I’m 64?
Mallard Banquet Hall
April 21, 2011
Our own Dorothy Soper, a Peace Corps member who served from 1963-65 in Ghana, will be the moderator. The three panel members are: James Cloutier, Kenya, 1963-66; Dr. Nicole Brule, Lesoto, 1997-99; and Chris Chaplin, Kazahstan, 2007-2009.  They will reflect on their Peace Corps experiences and share their thoughts about its future.
Our Third Thursdays happen in The Mallard Banquet Hall at 725 West 1st Street in Eugene. The program, which is free, will begin at 12:15 p.m. 
 For those who wish to purchase lunch, a buffet is spread at 11:45.  The $12 cost for lunch includes beverage, dessert and tip. The cost for those who do not wish lunch but would like a beverage with refills is $2.50.
Call the League office, 541-343-7917, or e-mail us at for lunch reservations.  Reservations are a priceless help to the Mallard as the staff prepares for our Third Thursdays.

Your Photos

YouNews My Roses My Roses
I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
