Three Miami University couples from Cincinnati recently found themselves serving in the Peace Corps in Morocco.

CARV Needs Your Support!
The CARV Board voted at its June 13, 2016 meeting to convert to a calendar year dues structure. Dues are $15 per member for 2016 and will remain at $15 for 2017. If you have made a 2016 payment to CARV, that is fine. If you canít pay that is fine. No one will be dropped. If you can afford to make an additional donation, that is very fine!
Your dues permit CARV to continue to support local PCVs through the Peace Corps Partnership Program (PCPP), fund special projects, hold events for area RPCVs, and meet our operating expenses.

However, we donít have adequate funds to donate to this worthwhile
project and still meet minimum banking requirements and current expenses, including the July 17 CARV/SORVO picnic which CARV is hosting.
This message is sent to over 240 CARV members. In 2015, only 23 members supported CARV with dues or donations, less than 10% of our membership.
Will you please support CARV so that we can continue to remain an active and viable NPCA affiliate group.
