OCTOBER 17–Combined PC Third Goal project and monthly get together meal

Oct 17, 9am-noon+–Ky Peace Corps will visit SuppliesOverSeas (SOS) at 1700 Arlington Ave, Louisville, 40206.

First SOS staff will give us a tour of the SOS facility to learn more about how SOS ships donated medical supplies to medically impoverished world sites. Then we will help sort items for an upcoming shipment.  Then we will have our monthly meal–this time a lunch potluck, about Noon, after finishing our work

Here is the plan:  SOS staff will meet us there at 9:00 and give us an initial  tour/explanation of what SOS does, and then have our group proceed to sort items for their next shipment.  We will need to bring a dish and drink that will be easy to handle and serve after our tour/work (FYI their conference area has a fridge and microwave, no stove; you will need a drink, and we (Judy L) will have utensils, plates, napkins).

 To make sure this all is coordinated well, please RSVP to Judy Lippmann at no later than October 14.

To learn more of SOS go to  Melissa Mershon, our host, is sister of a KY RPCV, so that is the connection here!
