There have been some last minute changes in the Peace Corp program at the BCP on Tuesday, Dec. 5.  Sadly Laura fractured her shoulder and will be in Panama City for a while, but Emily from Rio Sereno will be taking her spot. And unfortunately Matt cannot make it but Marianna Corckill from Salitral is replacing him
