Volunteer and Club Fair
The “Volunteer and Club Fair” is an annual event during normal times, but this was the first event post covid restrictions at the Ringling College of Art & Design, in Sarasota, Florida.
This event is designed for the students at the college. There was a screener at the door to facilitate the entry of the students attending the event and to allow the invited clubs and volunteer groups to enter. The students join clubs affiliated with the college and find out more about both campus based and outside volunteer opportunities, such as the Peace Corps, especially since the college hosts select outside groups to join the event. RPCV GCFL being one of those.
The “Volunteer and Club Fair” has been going on for at least 10 years. The RPCV GCFL affiliate had participated in the event prior to the last two years of restrictions due to covid.
The RPCV’s manning the table were: James Charnell (Mali 2000-03), Forrest Walker (Philippines(1985-87), and support team member Gina Walker, Walker’s wife.
