I need Mexico City Registration Forms from Everyone!! Please fill out a form a turn it in at the Chorus table if you have not done so. I need to have correct information from EVERYONE who is going on the trip. And those of you who still owe me a deposit check, please get it to me tonight!!
DOCUMENTS FOR TRAVEL TO MEXICO To enter Mexico and re-enter the
United States U.S. citizens need to have either:
a) a VALID passport
b) a CERTIFIED birth certificate AND a government issued i.d. (such as a drivers license). A certified birth certificate is one issued directly by the county where you were born - a copy of a birth certificate is not good enough.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR DOCUMENTS NOW, WHILE THERE IS STILL TIME TO OBTAIN WHAT YOU NEED!!
Room-mate sign up begins tonight at the break - check the list in the hallway. The Mexico City organizers want to complete this early this year, so please start making your plans!
--Help with SNACKS. We need one or two volunteers for the summer who will take charge of providing cookies, pretzels etc. Anyone who shops at Sam's Club would be a great candidate for this job. (You will be reimbursed.) See Corita Dubose or Susan Scarrow if you can help with this.
--Help with a MEXICO CITY INFORMATION BOOKLET. After 15 years of Chorus visits to Mexico City, it's time to collect some Chorus lore into a booklet of helpful tips on where to have fun, and how to travel well, on our Mexico City trips. David Knoll has offered to spearhead this effort. Are there others who are willing o help put together an orientation guide that will be of particular interest to first-time tour participants? If so, please speak to David, or contact him at Dknoll @ winstead.com .
