At our Peace Corps Partnership Dinner in November we enjoyed Peruvian food and stories from Marilu Villa and Betty Zambrano (recently returned PCVs) and we raised funds for a library project of a Florida PCV serving in Ethiopia.
We also hosted Happy Hours in South Beach, Boca Raton and Stuart in November.
More than 50 RPCVs enjoyed a great Holiday Party at the home of Ana Ciereszko on December 6. We gathered dozens of toys for children in foster care, and donated books in English and Spanish for an organization working with children in Homestead.
Several RPCVs kayaked on a gorgeous Saturday, Dec. 13, and enjoyed stone crab claws at the home of Barbara and Daryl Wall.
The PCDs went diving at the Blue Heron Bridge in West Palm Beach on Sunday, Dec. 14.
A few of our "northern" RPCVs enjoyed hot chocolate and a tour of the Winter Wonderland at Hoffman's Chocolates Factory on Dec. 14.
