Returned Peace Corps volunteers gathering set

All Helena-area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) and their guests are invited to a social gathering Monday, March 6, at 5:30 p.m. at Mt. Ascension Brewing at 317 Cruse Ave.

The event will be a special time to meet others who have served in the Peace Corps overseas, to hear their stories, and to share your experiences.

The Peace Corps was created by President John F. Kennedy in March 1961 as a new opportunity for Americans to serve their country by living and working in the developing world.

AARP driver safety classes

AARP Driver Safety has single classes scheduled in Helena during February and March. Participants receive updates on the rules of the road and learn driving strategies to adapt to the effects of aging and to reduce chances of having a crash. The course was developed for participants age 50-plus, but is open to all ages. The course fee is $25 ($20 with AARP membership card). Auto insurance companies in Montana provide a multi-year discount to participants 55 years of age and older.
