Well we got our first few details on the newest group to Peace Corps
Samoa,Group 76. It's so strange to think that in a few months time we
will have been here over half a year and will that much closer to
welcoming the newest ICT group. But it's also good to know that soon
Group 75 will no longer be the freshmen of the volunteer community!
Graduation Day is June 7 (Wed) which is after the second term of
school begins so odds are I won't be able to welcome them at 2 in the
morning. Here's what we know so far:

There will be 11 VBD (Village Based Development) and 3 ICM (Inter
Coastal Management) Volunteers.
The group includes an older couple former Peace Corps Volunteer who
volunteered in Morocco in the early 1980s.
One of the volunteers is a marine biologist with experience in Alaska
and eastern Russia - so it will be quite different here for that

We don't know names yet, but it should be fun to meet these folks and
get a good look at what it was like to go through training from the
otherside of the fence. June 7th here we come!
