Featured Speaker

March Meeting 

Author Leita Kaldi Davis served as a Peace Corps business development volunteer in Senegal. She returned to the States only briefly, before, at age 58, she started her new duties in Haiti.  She exemplifies how Peace Corps can open doors and enrich the subsequent careers not only of young college graduates, but also of their more seasoned colleagues.  She shows that people in their sixties and beyond still can make social contributions and are not necessarily ready to retire from life.
