Michael Dixon will give a presentation on his nearly three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Vinnytsia, Ukraine. Dixon maintained an award-winning architectural practice in St. Charles for over thirty years, and joined the Peace Corps in 2011. He will tell the story of his time working to recover and preserve Ukrainian folk architecture and culture, as well as escaping with ten other volunteers during the turmoil of the Russian invasion, in February 2014. Mike is currently working on a restoration project for a castle in Lutsk, Ukraine.
