Words from the President

Welcome to your new website!  Last year we re-designed our Friends of Colombia newsletter and now we have re-designed our website.  Our goal for both is the same:  to make it easier, faster, and more fun for you to see what is going on in our world–which includes the work of current PCVs in Colombia as well as the work and lives of our RPCVs at home and abroad.  Our website is a work in progress–we hope you will read it and enjoy it, but also tell us what else you would like to see.  And be sure to join us if you are not already a member.  Just print out the membership form under Connect & Join and send it to foc.memberlist@gmail.com.
–Arleen Stewart Cheston, President
