On Wednesday, October 26 at 6:00 PM, the Pember Library at 33 West Main St. in Granville is hosting a presentation by Marjorie and Greg Scieszka. The couple will reflect on the experiences they had as Peace Corps Response Volunteers in Swaziland during 2010-11. Both were assigned to work in the Ministry of Education in Mbabane, Swaziland, and their Peace Corps assignments involved working to implement free primary education in Swaziland as well as traveling to schools around the country, helping to set up school libraries. They also worked on several projects with UNICEF and UNESCO. While there, they attended a royal wedding and visited several big game parks.
Marjorie and Greg live in Manchester Center, VT. They served as Peace Corps Volunteers 40 years ago in Lesotho, South Africa, and in January were able to return to that country to visit the Basotho people with whom they have stayed in touch over all these years. They will talk about their many experiences, show photos they took during the year, and exhibit artifacts from Swaziland.
