Take a moment to check out this great Denver Post article "Amid application spike, Colorado still fertile ground for Peace Corps", by Kevin Simpson. Posted online on Friday, Nov. 13, 2015, the article focuses on the Peace Corps and the strong role Colorado plays in sending recruits overseas and welcoming Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) back home through graduate programs.

We need our Colorado Peace Corps community to help us out! We are working to get the Colorado legislature to approve an official Peace Corps license plate and need 3000 signatures to do so. Sign up here, and please forward to your friends and family who are Colorado residents and have them sign!

1.  You have to be a Colorado resident

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
