We have announced the 2014 social hours! This year, we will have a few "travelling" social hours where we will choose an alternative location to have a drink and a chat with anyone who is interested in Peace Corps.
Social hours take place at 7:30pm, and will be at the Oakcrest Tavern (4022 N Oakland, in Shorewood), when no other location is mentioned. They are open to anybody interested in Peace Corps and are a great way to chat about MPCA and to learn more about Peace Corps and hear individual volunteers' stories.
Here are the Social Hour dates for 2014:
Happy New Year! Below you will find the newly-announced dates of the upcoming year. We will be having "wandering" social hours this year, so keep a look out for those locations. Keep checking in, because more precice times and locations will be announced. If there are any changes to be made, they will happen here as well.
MPCA is participating in this year's NAMI Walk!
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is a non-profit agency dedicated to advocating for those with mental illness, and ensuring that communities provide enough services to support those in need. NAMI advocates for awareness, education and research. In Wisconsin, NAMI offers trainings, mentorships and supportive environments, such as the Grand Avenue Club.
This year's recipient of the Shriver Award was Milwaukee County Treasurer, Dan Diliberti (Chile, '69-'71). The award includes a $500 donation to a charitable organization of the recipient's choice, and Mr. Diliberti chose NAMI.
Come join MPCA on the walk! Stay tuned for how to join the MPCA team, and if you're interested in donating to the event, you can find more information here.
