Russian Language Meetup!

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 6:30 PM – 8 PM, Location:TBD

Let’s get together and bust our our Ruski Jazik! Many of learned Russian in the Peace Corps but are now a bit out of practice – time to get back on that русская лошадь! We’re still on the lookout for a space (let us know if you have one in mind!).

We’ll start with this date and time and see when is best for everyone to meet monthly. We can chat, play games, talk about how much we like cats – as long as it’s in Russian!

First Wednesday Happy Hour for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers!

First Wednesdays are the best Wednesdays to grab a drink with fellow RPCVS!

Details here.

Will there be other awesome volunteers there?
Will you have the chance to hear stories about others’ service and share stories from your own experience?
Will we be recreating the stock image from this event?
Will you regret stopping by?

Join us at Drop Off Service the first Wednesday of every month – unless it’s a major holiday, we are just like the Met Museum….

We are usually in the two corner tables in the back, to the left of the bar. Or just scream “Peace Corps???” upon entry. Because that’s not weird at all.
