In our first decade as an organization run primarily by and for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers…
- CRPCA began operation as the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Oregon in 1982. We’ve been serving our community and engaging the world ever since.
- A strong emphasis was placed on monthly newsletters. Only three months were skipped in this organization’s first decade.
- We launched many of our core activities: potlucks with international programs, social gatherings at ethnic restaurants, annual picnics, our speakers bureau, and service activities such as refugee resettlement.
Read all about that and more in our 1982-1989 newsletters.
