Citizenship Washington FocusQuestions Asked at the Meeting

These were questions asked during the meeting not covered in the minutes.

1. Is a dress bag considered a carry on?

Yes if it puts you over 2 pieces of luggage. I would suggest bringing items you can fold up into a suitcase.

2. Do hotels have irons?

Most do, if not a sponsor will have one.

3. How do you dress at the National Cathedral?

Very conservative. This is a dressy day - slacks with a dress shirt. Absolutely no short skirts or halter tops or tank or halter dresses - the less skin showing the better.

4. Will we have a chance to do laundry?

Yes, there is a laundry mat at the 4-H Center. The sponsors will be able to wash a few of your items while we are there. Please bring quarters.

5. Will Canadian stores take our American money?

Yes! They do automatic exchanges.

6. What will the bus temperature be?

The bus will be cold most of the time. Bring a blanket.

7. Will we be in charge of our own paperwork on the trip?

No, Deanna Karmazin will file everything. You will not carry your health forms or birth certificates.

8. Will travelers checks be taken at most places due to the increase in fraud?

In the past we have not had problems. Check with your bank to see what method of money would be the best. Some parents suggested getting bank cards. Deanna Karmazin said they would search around for places that do take travelers checks. Make sure you check with your bank if the 4-H'er will need a government issued ID to cash a travelers check.

9. Does the bus have a DVD or VCR?

Not sure - We'll find out once we book the bus.

10. How many other kids are in D.C. with us?

Around 500.

11. Will we get to see the new native American Museum?

Yes, if you want to. We have a free day in D.C. and you are encouraged to split up into groups and explore what they are interested in.

12. Will we have to buy breakfast each day?

No, travel agent to made sure we have a hotel that has an expanded continental breakfast each morning. Most will even have waffles, etc.

13. Are cell phones allowed?

Yes, if they are not used as a mode of entertainment. 4-H'ers shouldn't be gabbing to betty best friend while we are gone. They are to be used for emergency situations and to call home. ould suggest just leaving them at home and buying phone cards to call home.

14. Are digital cameras allowed?

Yes, but you are responsible for your camera. If you think you may misplace it, just bring a disposable camera. We will not have time to back track steps to find cameras and purses. If you bring a film camera - remember film. Film is extremely expensive on the streets and in museum shops.
