T’is with gratitude and sadness that we wish Shannon French, VP-Social and Matt Ricardo, Treasurer, a fond farewell from their years of Service to the La. PC Association. The Association is in a much better place to reach out and connect Volunteers due to their diligence and active leadership. May future Boards learn from your example and humbly follow in your footsteps.
10 faithful Louisiana RPCVs showed up for work–New Orleans festival style. In support of the Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals, almost $200,000 were raised at the annual “New Orleans On-Tap” in the lush City Park.
Thanks to all of our LPCA/RPCV/MI friends who joined the Bogue Chitto State Park camping trip in early October! Such a gorgeous float down the river with our PC network including a dozen MI students and some LPCA past and present Board Members—keeping the link alive (kinda like we tried to do with the canooz during those rough currents!)
Putting on a quarterly “Ethnic Night Out” brings LPCVs together to share in the wonderfully diverse foods of our Service–and New Orleans!
The Premier LPCA Event of 2014 was a success as the Summer BBQ in late August at “The Fly” had a smashing turnout! It was so great to catch up with old friends and meet the new! Thanks to everyone who made our annual BBQ such a great time. We hope to see you all again for the holiday party in December…
Today, Louisiana Peace Corps Association members partnered with local non-profit, Project Homecoming, to rebuild a well-deserving family’s home. Project Homecoming helps families whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Katrina and works with families who are hoping to become homeowners by building brand new homes on previously abandoned or blighted properties.
LPCA members worked hard in the sun, and got their hands dirty by installing siding and trim.
