Peace Corps/Morocco 50th Anniversary Celebration
Memorial Day Weekend May 26-27, 2012 Rabat, Morocco
Celebrate five decades of Peace Corps service to Morocco by over 4500 volunteers. This two-day series of events TBD will include, Insha'Allah, activities hosted by the Friends of Morocco and National Peace Corps Association, Peace Corps/Morocco, the US Embassy in Morocco and the government of Morocco. Read about the start of Peace Corps in Morocco. We expect media coverage.
For planning purposes, we need to know how many potentially plan to show up. Can we get an expression of interest?
At the minimum, we will have a reception at the Peace Corps office campus at 2 Rue Abou Marouane Essaadi, Agdal 10100 Rabat Morocco on Saturday, May 26 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Additional events will be developed as interest and opportunities emerge.
We would hope 100 to 200 RPCVs will take this opportunity to bring family and friends to their sites of service across Morocco (or just vacation in Morocco) during the two weeks before and/or after the weekend.
Visit the Friends of Morocco web site for information about flights to Morocco; tour opportunities; car rental, bus and train information; hotels, riads and other places to stay.
