Special Events


We hold various events throughout the year that transcend our typical social, professional, or community service activities. Three stand out in particular:

Annual Holiday Party and Silent Auction (December) 

Summer Barbecue and Board of Directors Election (July)

RPCV/W also plays a major role in commemorating key anniversaries of the Peace Corps. In September of 2011, RPCV/W planned, funded, and implemented a two-hour ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Amphitheater, which was attended by over 5,000 and included a march of flags across the Memorial Bridge and into the National Mall.  

Overseeing all of this is our Special Events Director, Sarah Weber. Contact her at specialevents@rpcvw.org if you would like to help with planning or volunteer your services at a particular event.
