Attention Seattleites!!! This is a wonderful opportunity, and VidaMaz very much hopes we can put you in touch with one another to do good things!!
Note from a reader:
“Hello, My name is Bill Hurley and I am vice president of the Seattle Mazatlán Sister Cities Association. Although the association has been dormant the past few years, we have a long history with Mazatlán dating back to 1979. We are looking for new members to help revive the great relationship we had with the city of Mazatlán.
Could you please help us by spreading the word with any of your friends in Mazatlán from the Puget Sound region who might be interested in such a venture?
Here is a brief rundown of some of the activities we have been involved with in the past:
- Student exchanges with host families in Mazatlan in Seattle.
- Hosting the delegation from Mazatlan for the Seafarer festivities in Seattle, including The Carnival Queen marching in the Seafair parade.
- Bringing the Roosevelt jazz band to to perform atthe Angela Peralta Theater and El Quelite.
- Installed computer labs at the boys Orphanage, El Quelite, and El Quemado.
Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Feel free to call me or give out my phone number to those who might be interested.
Don’t forget the Seattle U Clowns. They came down several years in the 1980s and 1990s when my husband Paul Williams and I were active in the Sister City Assn. The Seafair Commodores added a certain amount of decorum to the Mazatlan Carnaval festivities.
I was como Exchange student with Pat and Paul Williams
