At the close of the 50th anniversary exhibit, OHS made a gift of the panels, banners, and videos to CMPCE so that we are now able to make them available to others to enhance their exhibits.  The panels and banners provided a wealth of information allowing visitors to get an intimate feel for the experience of Peace Corps Volunteers.   The work done by Bryan Potter Design and Infinity Images was amazing.  Many positive comments were also made about the videos, produced by Dennis Burkhart, in which returned PCVs related their experiences in various aspects of  Peace Corps service.
