Come and honor the volunteers and friends who never came home. Since the Peace Corps began in 1961, nearly 200,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in 139 countries. Of these dedicated men and women, 287 have sacrificed not only their energies and time, but also their lives while pursuing the Peace Corps mission.
Nancy Boyd was one of the first PCVs who never came home and this park was dedicated in her honor. We'll share stories of our friends and members of the Martinez City Council will participate in the commemoration.
Fire Department (Station 13) will do a hot dog barbecue to Bikes for Tikes.
Rainy day venue to be confirmed. We will go on rain or shine but pick an alternate location which will be known in a day or two.
Bring your own chairs.
No alcohol allowed in park
We need three volunteers to arrive early and help with setup. Please RSVP Robert Goldstein at robertgoldstein79[at]yahoo[dot]com and let us know if you want to join in the picnic afterwards.
