Gorman Heritage Farm Family PicnicCARV Member, Evan Brothers, Zambia ’14-’16, is hosting a CARV social event for family and friends at Gorman Farm in Evendale. See http://gormanfarm.org/. This will be an early evening (6:30) get-together where we’ll be able to see the farm, meet a few of the animals, and socialize over snacks/dishes you’ll bring to share. CARV will provide table service and soft drinks. You may bring adult beverages of your choice. Evan will also share with the group a bit about his work as Education Director at Gorman. We have a few more details to work out, and soon (but not yet…) we’ll be asking for RSVPs to help us better prepare for the evening.
Thank You Note from Sierra LeoneCARV is a long-time supporter of Sherbro Foundation, which is dedicated to the education and empowerment of the people of Sierra Leone. Founded by CARV member, Arlene Golembiewski (Sierra Leone '74-'76), Sherbro successfully supported the Bumpeh Chiefdom through the Ebola outbreak and is now actively involved in new and continuing projects. Arlene recently returned to Sierra Leone and brought back a lovely note from one of the school girls CARV has helped. See the link at the bottom of this page.
Refugee ResettlementA group of CARV members and their kids joined out Syrian family at Middleton-Mills Park in Covington on President's Day for a truly American experience. We learned how pioneers and Native Americans tapped maple trees, syrup and sugar. We drank sweet sap directly from the trees and participated in the whole process. The Syrian kids wondered if there were elephants and tigers in the Kenton County woods and everyone had a terrific time.

CARV Needs Your Support!The CARV Board voted at its June 13, 2016 meeting to convert to a calendar year dues structure. Dues are $15 per member for 2016 and will remain at $15 for 2017. If you have made a 2016 payment to CARV, that is fine. If you can’t pay that is fine. No one will be dropped. If you can afford to make an additional donation, that is very fine!
Your dues permit CARV to continue to support local PCVs through the Peace Corps Partnership Program (PCPP), fund special projects, hold events for area RPCVs, and meet our operating expenses.
A local Peace Corps Volunteer, David Vanness, has asked CARV for support of his PPCP water project in Morocco. (See
However, we don’t have adequate funds to donate to this worthwhile
project and still meet minimum banking requirements and current expenses, including the July 17 CARV/SORVO picnic which CARV is hosting.
This message is sent to over 240 CARV members. In 2015, only 23 members supported CARV with dues or donations, less than 10% of our membership.
Will you please support CARV so that we can continue to remain an active and viable NPCA affiliate group.
