I was a volunteer in Mali from 1977 to 1979. For years, I always thought I'd like to have a "class" ring- like a college ring- with "Peace Corps Mali" in an oval on the top, and "77" on one side, and "79" on the other. I envisioned an oval piece of amber for the stone . I wrote a high school ring supplier and was told that they don't do single special orders- they have to have a large group- like a graduating class...

Is there anybody else who thinks that a "Peace Corps" ring is a good idea?

Hi Everybody, Saloum Soumare is retiring! As you may already know, Saloum has been with Peace Corps Mali for 32 years. He was a language professor when Peace Corps was first invited to Mali in 1971 and has been the Training Manager for at least the last 10 years, if not longer. The Bamako office is putting together a ceremony for him before the end of November. They would like to surprise him with a remembrance book at that time. The book will contain stories, memories, quotes, and photographs. Saloum has seen every generation of volunteers so I am sure that there are some wonderful tidbits that are waiting to be seen and heard. Saloum is truly an icon in Peace Corps Mali history. If you have items that you would like to contribute to the book, please contact Cheryl Turner, the current APCD of Health and Water Sanitation in Mali. Her email address is: cturner@ml.peacecorps.gov Thanks for your help! Sabrina Washington, Mahina '98-'00

Hello,

My name is Y Osee Sanogo. I was born and raised in Konilo-Coura, a village situated in the cercle of Tominian, Segou Region - close to Yasso. Currently, I work as a research assistant at the University of Illinois, in Champaign-Urbana, IL.

I am writing to ask for a favor. I have collected some books in French in Marseille with the help of my French friends. A company 'Embassy France" has voluntered to transport the books from Marseille to Bamako. I would like to start a library with the books in my village which now has a three classroom community school. There is a storage are for the books in the village. We need to build a library and a reading center for the kids. The books should arrive to Bamako in two or three weeks.

I am writing to ask if PEACE CORPS in Mali would not like to help with this project. The peace corps agent would also help in setting up the library. I would really appreciate it.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any question.

Yours sincerely,

Osee

A colleague and I will be in Bamako on business next week and we would love to find a place to watch the Super Bowl. Is there anyplace in Bamako that would have access to American television?

(Sorry, I realize this is a ridiculous thing to be concerned about, but my colleague is a huge Steelers fan.)

Gary Hunt are you still out there?

I am typing a journal that I kept while traveling through Europe, Africa, and India in 1979. My former husband and I met you in Athens, Greece on October 13, 1979 shortly after you finished your 2 years with the Peace Corps in Mali. You told stories about Mali that I recorded in my journal. Ironically, I ended up working on a USAID project and I've had the good fortune to travel and work in Mali for 1-3 week stints for the past 7 years. If you would like a copy of the journal text that includes your stories, let me know.

My family and I have organized a small charitable activity in the New York area and we are preparing to send some sports items to Mali through Malian government channels. A former Peace Corp volunteer recommended that we try to get in touch with the Peace Corp in Mali, just to have a local American contact. If anyone has an e-mail address or phone number for a Peace Corp volunteer in Mali, please email it to me.
