Responses needed for PC 50th Exhibit by April 1!

Forwarding FYI  an urgent message about the planned  50th Peace Corps Anniversary Exhibit in Portland , OR that will feature the  history and experiences of  RPCVs from the Pacific Northwest. Please respond directly to Marsha Matthews.  The original request was posted here on our website on Feb. 9.


To all,

You have all expressed interest in loaning objects to the proposed Peace Corps exhibit. The deadline to submit images of your objects is fast approaching (April 1 – no fooling). So I am writing to say that so far I have received one set of photos, which is not enough to make an exhibit out of.

The confirmation of this exhibit on OHS’s exhibit schedule is dependent on all of you. I need more input from you all before I do this. The enthusiasm is high, OHS really wants to do this exhibit, we are prepared to commit time, staff, and resources to it, but as I said at our previous meeting, I can’t do this without all of you helping. So now is the time to come to the aid of this exhibit.
