I am trying to connect with Gambian RPCV's, especially those serving during the 1969-1973 era.

I volunteered in the Gambia during the 1970/71 time frame and worked as an auditor for the farmers who were members of the government-sponsored agricultural buying stations.There were three of us that did this work and we traveled with a Gambian counterpart.I was 6'1'' and weighed about 180 lbs and had black hair and was from Pittsfield, Ma. ( see my links below)

I am trying to find: Mel Adams and Jim Fittus (sp) and Peter from Boston area, and another guy who was from Va among others.

I recently joined a PC organization and became part of " Friends of Gambia/Senegal" via this link:

If any of this sounds interesting, please contact me for nostalgia sake at least and/or feel free to forward/post this message to any and all concerned.

Wishing you the best,
