In spite of a freak mid-September down pour of rain over 50 RPCVs packed the house of Chris Carlisle for the 19th Annual Recently Returned Party. This was the largest showing of RPCVs at this event in a decade and it was wall to wall people. Chris has been hosting this event every year for 19 years in his backyard but the rain didn’t faze Chris as he cleared his house, broke out the extra chairs and open his doors so everyone could stay dry.
Thanks to Chris Carlisle for once again hosting a great party, Frank Price for helping organize and Joanie Pacheco who prepared the food. Joanie isn’t even a returned Peace Corps Volunteer but gladly volunteered when she heard it was for recently returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Not only did she volunteer hours of time cooking she also donated all the food that we so heartily enjoyed. Thanks Joanie!
