Bellingham Potluck

The Mt. Baker Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Assn. is hosting a Returned Peace Corps Volunteers potluck on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 6 pm in Bellingham. The program speaker will be Marcie Miller, a Pacific Northwest native who served as a TEFL volunteer in Armenia, 2015-2017. She taught English at a high school and started a media studies class at a university branch. In her pre-PC life she was a journalist, and has lived in Tanzania and South Korea. She now lives in Bellingham with her rowdy cat, Archie.
Please RSVP to me by Wednesday, Jan. 17 to Cat McIntyre.  Bring a potluck dish to share, as well as your own dishes, utensils and beverages. Thus, we can lighten the cleanup, and spare a tree.
