Viva Mission Inn

Inland Empire Chorus in Riverside, California, is doing a rendition of Young Reader’s adventure books about Flat Stanley.  We thought our International Queens wouldn’t be travelling this year so let’s let Viva! visit your chorus. 

They’ll come to you in a tube with directions on how to “entertain” them while they visit.  Be creative and have fun.  Feel free to post your photos on FB and check our website for additional posts.

Let’s make this a “virtual Viva! Visit”.  Let them travel freely and with only postage as an expense.

Here we are showing Viva! the famous Mission Inn in Riverside, meeting different chorus members, and enjoying a BIG plate of nachos.
