Mexico Celebrates 1810, 1910 And 2010 Art Show - In 2010, Mexico has two celebrations: The first one is the Bicentennial, 200 years from the Independence in 1810 and the second one is the Centennial, 100 years from the Mexican Revolution in 1910.
ARTS (Artists of Todos Santos) has planned a celebratory and educational community historic event about Mexico’s Bicentennial of the Independence and the Centennial of the Mexican Revolution. This event is in association with the children’s Art Group from the Palapa Society and the children from Escuela Pacifica. The children from these two groups will create drawings or paintings of the well known heroes of both historic events. This represents the opportunity for the children to learn about the history of their country and feel the pride in their ancestors.
Call For Volunteers For Art Show - Volunteers are needed to assist with the Mexico Celebrates 1810, 1910 and 2010 Art Show. This ARTS Project has been organized by Gloria Santoyo Ruenitz and Tori Sepulveda. Most of the pre-planning has been done but volunteers are needed in the following areas:
Ezra Katz Workshop - Ezra katz will be giving an oil painting workshop, november 5 to 7. Limited spaces available. For more info, call Frieda at galeria indigo, 044-612 1373473. - Frieda Telemans, indigotodossantos [ -at- ] yahoo.com, Todos Santos
Dogs at the Border Update - Sorry for the ambiguous posting, what I am asking about is the TJ border guards are using THEIR sniffing dogs to inspect the cars crossing into Mexico for contraband. I know their doing it at Tijuana, but are they ALSO doing it in Tecate? I know secondary checks can take really chew up some time, not to mention the intimidation. - Tall Man, gypszcaravan [ -at- ] gmail.com, Baja California Sur
Charismatic Renewal Service, Fridays 8:00 - The local Catholic Church has a weekly rockem-sockem renewal service with a band, choir and high energy singing and expressions of faith. Although the service is 100% in Spanish (like the Mass) you will immediately be befriended, whether you speak the language or not. The love and joy are palpable, and if you want a snapshot of the local culture, please come. - David Yager, david [ -at- ] alderwood.com, Todos Santos
Audition Notice, Wizard Of Oz With A Todos Twist - All parts are open, nothing will be set till after Nov.7, so come on down and be part of the fun for either a lead part: (an older) Dorothy, Todos her dog, Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion can be male or female, Wicked Witch or Glinda the Good. Smaller parts include Munchkins, Winkies, Flying Monkeys and an assortment of Emerald City Characters. Or maybe you want to help out behind the scenes.
