Welcome Wagon News

The next Welcome Wagon dinner will be Saturday October 24 from 4-7 PM.  This is for RPCVs who have recently returned from service or recently moved to Colorado to meet others who are new to the area.  Please for more information.
The Welcome Wagon Action Team will also be hosting smaller meet-up events at businesses (coffee shops, ice cream shops, etc) around town.  This will be an opportunity to sit down with fewer people in a quieter setting but also still for RPCVs new to Colorado.  They will be posted on the website for people to sign up.  If there is an area where there are newly returned RPCVs and no meet-ups planned for that location, email to suggest a new loaction!

Northern Colorado RPCV News

Hello RPCVs of northern Colorado,

Another semester has begun and I am happy to announce I'm still serving as the Peace Corps Representative at CSU!  
First off, I think it would be fun to get together for drinks next Friday Sept 11th at 5 pm at the Equinox Brewery(133 Remington St. until around 8 pm. How does that sound? I promise to try and host a more family friendly event later this semester (maybe another attempt at the City Park Potluck) and then at least one more in the spring. 
This semester I am looking for RPCVs to help present their experiences at 3 events. Two Information Meetings on campus in the Morgan Library Event Hall from 5 - 7 pmOctober 9th and November 18th.  
Plus we will have another event, likely October 28th, off campus that I am going to attempt to make Halloween themed. I'm looking for people that can share scary/ghost/folk stories or cultural aspects from their host country. What do you think? 
Please email me if you are interested in helping out with any of these events!
Also, another RPCV, Amy Healy, is looking for help with presenting about living international at Fossil Ridge High SchoolNovember 23rd and 24th. I've attached a document with more information about the event and her contact information. Please get in touch with her if you are willing to help out.
If you want to be removed from this email list or have suggestions of RPCVs that should be added please send me an email. I hope you all are doing well. Take care,

Tomas Pickering

In May 2015, General Secretary John Hewko from Rotary International and Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Rotary District Conference in Keystone. This MOU formalized a relationship between these two organizations by declaring that “The Parties' desire to cooperate in order to pursue their common objectives in advancing sustainable community development, world understanding, and peace.” It is with that impetus that the various Rotarians of the Denver region would like to partner with local RPCVs into build a partnership for humanitarian work.
Join Rotarians and fellow RPCV’s on October 10th for a morning discussion on how RPCV’s and Rotarians can work together to establish a Rotary Peace Corps Community Corps. This partnership will be the first of its kind so there will be an open discussion with opportunities to brainstorm and get involved following information about Rotary and the agreement. Multiple chairs from local Rotary Clubs in the Denver area have been invited to this get together to join and lead the discussion.
The meeting will be at the Daniels Fund, 101 Monroe St., room 137 starting a 8am and going until 12pm noon. Parking is available on the west side. Light food will be served but feel free to bring your favorite side to share.
We look forward to seeing you there!
