Thanks for the memories, Jerry Robelard, I will never forget the time when George Eckenrode and I were stuck in Stanleyville (Kisangani) for eight weeks on our motorcycle trip from Lesotho (Peace Corps) across Africa. You were a hard drinkin, full of life, advanced aged volunteer from Boston, who kept us in laughter while sitting around George's Restaurant and Bar across the street from the Olympia Hotel. You were having the time of your life and I still recall your philosophy of volunteerism "I'm just putting a bean in the pot and if everyone would do the same the pot would be full." I did make it to Switzerland and the little hotel and cafe you loved to talk about, thanks for the memories my friend.

SECID, the Southeast Consortium for International Development,is based in Washington, D.C. SECID is a consortium of land grant universities which provides technical assistance and trainging in developing countries.

We are preparing a proposal for USAID to implement a five-year training program in Southern Sudan. This program will provide training to local trainers who will subsequently train other participants. The subject matter areas include:
1. Crop production; 2 Animal production; 3. SME agribusiness, marketing and economics;
4. Fisheries development and processing;
5. Forestry and forest product development; and
6. Wildlife management.

We are seeking candidates who have subject matter expertise (MS degrees desirable), training experience and an interest in accepting two-year assignments in the southern part of the country - likely locations include: Yambio, Maridi, Yirol, Rumbeck, Boma, and Yei.

Interested persons can Email CVs and/or email Bob Delemarre at: to obtain more information, raise questions, etc. These assignments would not be suitable for families with children due to lack of facilities and schooling.

Dear sirs,
I am looking for a peace corps volunteer named Michell Russels. She was in Zaire(Congo) in 1982-1984. I lost track of her when she was sent back to the US due to a health emergency. After numerous years outside of the US, I am now back home and would like to get in touch with her. I would appreciate any information as to her whereabouts. Anyone who is still in contact with her or who knows anything about what became of her is welcome to give her my email address or to contact me.
Thank you in advance,
Diana L. Murphy.

While in Kinshasa in September 2008, I met the National Coordinator of the Programme National Multisectoriel de Lutte Contre le SIDA (PNMLS) and all he could talk about was his Physics teacher from Isiro 1978 to 1981. Anyone remember a John Baskin Spencer or J Spencer Baskin?
