date: September 21 (in conjunction with International Day of Peace) from 11am to 4pm
location: Hostelling International Marin Headlands
NorCalPCA's Annual Picnic will be hosted this year at Hostelling International USA's Marin Headlands hostel and the adjacent Parade Ground. Attendees will be encouraged to bring their favorite dish for sharing and burgers, hot dogs (including vegan and veggie), and beer will be provided. Kitchen, refrigeration/freezer, and community space will be available inside the hostel, as well as a grill on site, picnic tables, and lawn games.
This year, in addition to our potluck, we will be stuffing care packages to send to currently serving Peace Corps Volunteers around the world. Please add your name to the sign-up sheet to bring goodies for shipping!
Parking will be limited so groups are encouraged to car-pool ( https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/46b7x3
) , take the 76X Marin Headlands Express, or arrive by bike! For those coming from outside of Marin, a group will be cycling from San Francisco the morning of the event (details to come).
