50 years of Peace Corps

In honor of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have served in the Peace Corps since 1961, we highlight a few local volunteers who have made a difference abroad--and one who is saddling up for her first taste at age 69.

In other news: A Chico icon, the Towne Lounge, is for sale; figs are in season (finally); a local Marine gets recognized; and Arts Devo previews the Chico Performances calendar.

As always, thanks for reading.
