The Bolivia 15 group originally consisted of La Paz - Gerard Cullen, Margaret Barry, and Jim Baker; Cochabamba - Zoe Hellekson (Rae), Andrea Schmitt (Brown), and Dale Harris (deceased 11/2019); Santa Cruz - Mike Hanrahan, Jessica Rohm and Rae Redfox.

It was an Urban Community Development group, trained at Yale, summer of 1964 and Ponce, Puerto Rico, summer of 1965 (Senior Year Program).

I think Gerard lives in Austin, TX; Rae in Round Rock, TX; Zoe in Albuquerque; Andrea in Peekskill, NY. Mike, Jessica, Margaret and Jim location unknown.

I thought about a reunion in 2015, our 50th anniversary, but Peace Corps headquarters did not have current locations of the group. Instead, we three ex-PCVs who served in Cochabamba, Bolivia (Zoe, Andrea and Dale) had a mini-reunion on Sanibel Island, Florida.

Zoe and Andrea
Going through my PC photos I found images of you at the Girl Scout Camp above Chochabamba. Send me an email to confirm your out there and I will send them to you.
