PAUL HARRIS BOARD DRAWING
No action here.
Forest Ratchford, spoke about being in the Peace Corps. He had two tours, one in Romania and one in St. Lucia. The Peace Corps promotes world peace and friendship, working on training locals of developing countries, promoting both our culture and their cultures. There are many areas the Peace Corps focus on including education, health, and youth in development, environment and economic development. Peace Corps is in 140 countries with over 220,000 volunteers. The application process takes about 1.5 years and once in the Peace Corps you can leave at any time, without any questions asked. The attrition rate is about 25%. John LePlante then followed Forrest and talked about his experience in the Peace Corps.
President Nick closed the meeting, Happy Trails All!
