RPCV/W's 50th Anniversary Event Report

March 14, 2012

Dear Friends,

As you very well know, the three events held at Arlington National Cemetery to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps on September 25, 2011 marked a very special day for our community. Thousands of RPCVs and their friends and families came together from around the world to share in this experience. Thanks to your tireless devotion to this cause, the 50th Anniversary events of September 25 are regarded as a resounding success. However, we, as heads of the RPCV/W 50th Anniversary Leadership Committee, will fail if we do not properly pass on to future generations how you did this. Again with your support, we have completed the official RPCV/W 50th Anniversary Report. Click Here to find your copy of the report.

Thank you again for all that you do!


Kristina J. Owens and Chris Austin
