"I'm sure when I ponder my life experiences, during the twilight of my years, I will regard my six weeks in Thailand as six of the most sensational weeks of my life... I traveled to Thailand hoping for an enriching experience. What I found exceeded my wildest expectations."

This fall, GSC members want you to join us for a night out on the town! We have planned several upcoming events...

Our first event was just held at The Ambassador on 9/13 for a special 2$ Tuesday Happy Hour and was a huge success! Our marketing team and the founders of Global Service Corps, Rick and Maxine Lathrop, spent an evening sipping cocktails and discussing the many programs and issues that GSC has continued to work for since it’s foundation in 1993.  We had a wonderful time getting to know you all, and hope to see you again at the upcoming events listed below!

•    SWANK HAPPY HOUR: 10/16
From 6-9 with DJ MELL. Drink specials for those who donate will be available.

Our next informal bash will have a bit of a Latin kick to it!  Certainly a night to remember, there will be a professional salsa dancing instructor teaching salsa lessons, and performances made by the (name of those performing, who they are..). By the end of the evening we hope to see everyone groovin’ the dance floor! There will be drink specials, good company and of course, plenty of dancin’ room! Put on your dancing shoes and come spend some time with us. Check back for further logisitics!
