Peace Corps and the Inaugural Parade
By Erica Burman on Saturday, November 22nd, 2008
NPCA and Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington, D.C. (RPCVw) have submitted a joint application to the Presidential Inauguration Committee to represent the Peace Corps community in the inaugural parade.
If our group is chosen to participate, about 300 marchers will be selected by a lottery system. Members of NPCA will be able to submit their names in the lottery from December 10-20, 2008.
Regardless of whether or not we are chosen to march, RPCVw plans to assign special “viewing areas” for RPCVs who want to watch the parade together. The RPCVw website will publish these details in January.
We’re as excited as you are for this opportunity, so stay tuned for updates!
