MY JAMAICAN STORY: Exciting Peace Corps Service In Jamaica


In 1963 my husband (Jack Shaffer) was appointed Director for 2 years. We had 7 children who were in 5 schools! Great education.

They had many Jamaican friends who considered our home theirs. I would load them in our VW bus and off we would go.

Boxing Day was MoBay, off to Maypen, a party in Browns Town or a party up in Beverly Hills, etc! I volunteered at The Art Gallery with Bob Verity, was on the board at Mico College, so it was a wonderful busy life!

We had 103 volunteers, including 2 sixty five years old nurses who served all over the island. The food was wonderful!

By the way, I have found a shop in L.A. that sells Jamaican patties and curried goat as well as groceries from Jamaica.

My oldest son married his Jamaican sweetheart. I have been back and still miss being there!!! Be sure to climb Dunn's River Falls

WELLESLEY'S NOTE

Hi Marian!

Sounds exciting! Thanks for a great review - short and sweet! So you spent two full years here right? Wonderful.

And glad to know that you still find time to come back after those years.

That's 1963! Do you have any pictures you could share, those should be priceless.

I typically invite my ardent website fans to share their feedback here, so watch the comments below.

Thanks again Marian and all the best!

Regards,
