Peace Corps Information Session Held in Bangor 

What is the Peace Corps? Well folks had the chance to find out Saturday at the Bangor Public Library.They offered a question and answer session for folks interested in learning more and or joining the Peace Corps.Volunteer Jessica Atherton was on hand to share her experiences, from living without electricity and running water for two years, to bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge.She said it seemed like a lot of people were interested in getting involved.”Peace Corps is a really great experience. It allows us to learn about other cultures while also learning about ourselves and that is something that pretty much benefits everybody involved.”Atherton says this is the first time they have offered a session like this and she was pleased with the turn out.
