Fort Collins to host Peace Corps reunion


Hundreds of former Peace Corps volunteers from around the country are expected in Fort Collins just ahead of the Democratic National Convention this summer, for a reunion and party celebrating the organization’s contributions.

Three days of events include speeches by prominent RPCVs, the Symphony for 1,000 drums conducted by world-renown Egyptian composer Halim El Dabh, a juried photography show of pictures taken by Peace Corps volunteers, panel discussions, a procession of flags, country-by-country mini-reunions and a Concert for Peace.

Festivities begin Friday Aug. 22 and continue throughout the weekend, ending with a Concert for Peace Sunday afternoon.

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, or RPCVs, are encouraged to sign up early by logging on to or calling (970) 419-8240. The public is also welcome to attend events throughout the weekend, so long as they register and purchase a ticket.

More information is available at the website, or by calling (970) 419-8240.
