BARPCV past events sticky icon

On July 29th, BARPCV held its summer picnic and field day.  Family, friends and pets came together to BBQ, break eggs between their legs, participate in relay races (carrying water on their heads) and other fun activities.

 

Special thanks to the organizers: Shane, Erica and Lucy!

 


 

BARPCV had a blast at Community Servings on Saturday, May 10, 2014, as 11 volunteers gave a collective 44 hours preparing hundreds of meals for home-bound residents with acute life-threatening illnesses throughout Massachusetts. Community Servings is an incredible organization with a dedicated staff and we had a great time!

 

Stories from Ukraine-McGrew, RPCV

Hi, my name is Jake McGrew and I just joined BARPCV. I was sent to Ukraine in September as part of the TEFL program. My training site was a very small town called Kozelets, which was an hour away from Kyiv (and Chernobyl..) and I was living with a single mother who had a son my age who was married and living in Kyiv. My host mom (Natasha) was the "cool mom" and had a facebook and everything. I loved running at the nearby stadium with her every night, even when it started snowing in late November. Around this time is when the EuroMaidan protests began, but even being an hour away our town was unaffected, until swearing-in. We actually had to be sworn-in a day early because we didn't know if we would be able to safely make it to the Embassy.
