On January 29th, the Central Missouri Returned Peace Corps Volunteers is hosting The Third Goal International Film Festival. There will be 4 films, commemorating 50 years of the Peace Corps. The feature film, Niger 66, is the story about a group of 65 idealistic Peace Corps volunteers in 1966 who were headed for Niger and landed in the heat-scorched desert.
