Each year SORVO (Southwestern Ohio Returned Volunteers Organization) and CARV team up to distribute Peace Corps literature and answer visitors' questions at Dayton's A World A'Fair International Festival. This year the festival is May 16-18. Volunteers help during a two hour time slot, and also receive free admission to the festival. SORVO organizes the volunteers but depends on CARV's support to help fill the time slots. Please contact SORVO Group Leader, Jim Dillon, to volunteer email@example.com.
