Former Peace Corps volunteer revisits Ethiopia 50 years later

This Thursday, Grass Valley attorney Joe Bell, a Peace Corps volunteer, will share experiences, history and photos from his trip back to Ethiopia, 50 years after serving as a volunteer. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps, roughly 100 former volunteers and family members arrived in Ethiopia Sept. 24, 2012. In collaboration with The Sierra Nevada Group, Bell will present "Ethiopia: The Historic Tour" Thursday at Seaman's Lodge in Nevada City. The presentation will include Ethiopian music, photos and a "narrative tour of 1,000 years of Ethiopian history." Doors open at 6:30 p.m., announcements at 7, and the presentation begins at 7:15.
