On Sunday, June 12, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship topic will be “Global Service: Working for the Peace Corps,” presented by Christina Knoell, a Peace Corps (PC) volunteer in the Philippines during April 1996 through June 1998.
She will share her Peace Corps experience by telling stories and presenting a picture slide show of her PC assignment, working conditions, living conditions, cultural barriers and challenges. Most of all, she will share her discovery that people are virtually the same all over the globe.
Christina has been working for nonprofit organizations for over 16 years. Her interests and experience have been in community development work, community supported agriculture, global travel, environmental education, and social and environmental awareness. A Pagosa resident for 14 years, she currently serves as the executive director of the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging for Region 9.
Julie Loar takes the helm as the new program coordinator of the CRE (Children’s Religious Exploration). In the more casual summer months, the children and young people will be spending more of their program time together outdoors.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the Fire Station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.
All are welcome.
