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.
