Maryland Returned Volunteer Group is Back in Action!

Maryland Returned Volunteers (MD RVs) is back, we are up and
running with a lot of great ideas. Our membership is starting
to grow, spanning all four decades of Peace Corps and every
continent where Peace Corps has served. We invite you to join
our organization and participate in some of our upcoming activities.

Maryland Returned Volunteers acts as a network for Maryland
Returned Peace Corps Vounteers (RPCVs), Vista Volunteers, and
families of RPCVs and Vista Volunteers in the Baltimore metro
area and surrounding counties. We meet both formally and
informally (see our proposed 2002 calendar below). Newly
returned volunteers can find helpful contacts and assistance
with various needs, and EVERYONE can find fellow RPCVs who
enjoy exchanging thoughts, sharing their unique experiences
and sometimes outrageous ideas. Of course we don't just live
in the past. Our goals include reaching out to Maryland
communities with service projects, sharing our knowledge and
appreciation of other people and cultures from around the
world, and keeping in touch with National and Global events.
