John and Lee Lamson were instrumental in the founding of RAIN. John became a Department of State management officer assigned to posts in Nigeria, France, Belgium, Niger and Latvia, as well as Washington, D.C., for 21 years before retiring and returning to the Seacoast. 

While serving in Niger, Lee and John hosted their friend Bess Palmisciano, who was so struck by the needs of the people of Niger that she asked Nigeriens how she could help. RAIN was the result. John and Lee have been involved with RAIN in many ways ever since, from serving on the board to helping raise funds or consulting on programs. 

Join us for an incredible celebration of RAIN, Niger, and Lee & John's decades of service!

Hosted by RAIN Dance Chairs Barbara & Ivor Freeman
