JUDY HEDSTROM's fourth-grade class at San Lorenzo Valley Elementary School has gone far beyond books for its lessons.

This year, her class has been communicating with KARL HEDSTROM, Judy's son, who is in the Peace Corps in Niger in West Africa. They have learned words and phrases in Zuma, the language of the village where he is staying, and are keeping up to date on his projects.

Recently, a Peace Corps alumna, U.S. Rep. SAM FARR, D-Carmel, also came to the class to talk about his time as a volunteer in Colombia.

It was a fun and informative lesson, Judy reports.

If you'd like to communicate with Peace Corps volunteer, you can write to Peace Corps, Coverdell World Wise Schools, 1111 20th St., N.W., Washington, D.C., 20526, or call 1-800-424-8580.

Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000  strong Date: April 2 2005 No: 543 Friends of the Peace Corps 170,000 strong
170,000 is a very special number for the RPCV community - it's the number of Volunteers who have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. It's also a number that is very special to us because March is the first month since our founding in January, 2001 that our readership has exceeded 170,000. And while we know that not everyone who comes to this site is an RPCV, they are all "Friends of the Peace Corps." Thanks everybody for making PCOL your source of news for the Returned Volunteer community.
