Refugee Resettlement

A 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.

Why Peace Corps Matters: Two Messages From NPCA

NPCA President, Glenn Blumhorst writes to everyone in the Peace Corps family about the the future of the Peace Corps under the soon-to-be Trump administration. See his message at http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/articles/a-letter-from-glenn-blumhorst-npca-president-ceo.

RPCVs and friends of Peace Corps are encouraged to express to President Elect Trump their feelings re. the importance of Peace Corps. Find suggestions for points to include in your message to Trump at http://www.peacecorpsconnect.org/articles/tell-president-elect-trump-why-the-peace-corps-matters.

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 canít 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
https://donate.peacecorps.gov/donate/project/igilouda-izgouaren-water-project/.)

However, we donít 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.
