On Saturday, November 12, the Board Members of the RPCV-NJ Organization had a regularly scheduled meeting at the Bridgewater Library. Since these meetings always stimulate our hunger, we retreated to the nearby Thai Kitchen Restaurant for dinner,where we were joined by several other RPCV’s and their family members / friends. We numbered 14 in all.
We were the only people in the restaurant at 5 PM when they opened, but within 30 minutes the place was packed and remained full all night — the food and service was that good. If you have never been there, it is certainly worth the trip (just Google it.)
The attendees included a 12 year old (son of an RSVP)—- a very adventurous eater who ordered a “sizzling platter”. And we had an RPCV couple who served together in the 1960’s. They had the honor and privilege of having the first Peace Corps baby born in service. In addition to that, another attendee (Bob Goodsell) was recently accepted into the Peace Corps and will begin his tour shortly in Tanzania. He got an earful from us and promises to keep in touch throughout his tour of service in the field of agriculture.
Please consider joining us at some or all of the varied activities that we sponsor. Just refer to the emails and newsletters that you receive from us.
