Upcoming Events

From Peace Corps China to Volunteering in Nigeria 
Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm  
Zoom Virtual Event  

After retiring from teaching French, German and ESL in San Diego, Judy Minnich Stout's travels have taken her from Peace Corps China to granny aupair in Spain to recently volunteering for 2 years in Nigeria with the Brethren Church. She will compare and contrast her experiences and show us slides, too.  There will be time for Q and A.

Please join us for some great stories! Judy is a member of San Diego Peace Corps Association and also the Brethren Church (where we hold our annual holiday party).

Virtual Belly Dance Basics 
Wednesday, June 17th from 7 to 8pm

Join SDPCA board member Tina Silva for a belly dance basics class. Tina has been belly dancing on and off for around 12 years and will lead us through a 60 minute virtual class going over belly dance posture, basic moves, and finally, putting all you will learn together in a fun combo! All levels are welcome, no prior experience needed. If you've ever wanted to learn, this will be a great introduction to belly dance movement. 

Wear comfortable clothes (leggings, yoga pants, tank top or t-shirt). Please warm up before class and show up ready to move! There are plenty of warm up and stretching videos available on YouTube, look for some that meet your needs and comfort level. 

SDPCA Virtual Book Club 
Wednesday, June 24 at 7pm 

Join us for a lively and thoughtful discussion about this month’s book: American Taboo: a Murder in the Peace Corps by Philip Weiss.  Please be sure to read the book prior to the meeting. 

Cooking for Rachel’s Women’s Shelter 
Sunday, July 12 
Prepare are your house and deliver between 3:30 and 4:30pm 
Details to RSVP

Our 7th annual Rachel's Women's Shelter event is just around the corner. This year some things remain the same, others must change in accordance with safe practices in this time of COVID19.  Once again we'll be providing dinner for 35-40 women. Our previous group cooking and serving doesn't, however, fit into current health and safety guidelines. Rachel's women are now receiving group donations curbside and are doing their own meal serving!

For 2020, we invite volunteers to create a dish in their own kitchen and bring it to the home of Karen Lindquist for delivery to Rachel's. Our menu will be a buffet of “Cool Summer Salads” and “Refreshing Desserts”.

Click on the link above for details of how you, if interested, can lend a helping hand for this not-so-traditional 2020 Rachel's dinner. While we'll miss the usual camaraderie of cooking and serving together, we look forward to continuing this annual SDPCA community service activity.
