2016 is going to be a great year.
Thanks to you, we started it off by selling out of our Panama VAC calendars, and now we are counting down the days until the Peace Corps Panama Expansion Reunion in Panama June 11th & 12th. The event will be complete with a ‘Welcome Home’ dinner of all the Panamanian food you never thought you would miss, a visit to the soon to be newly expanded Panama Canal and an evening of tipico music and dancing, cold chica and stories of our fondest memories of being a Peace Corps Volunteer in Panama.
