Most of you know by now that our upcoming reunion in Buffalo is on September 28 to Oct 1. At this reunion we are planning a day trip to Niagara Falls. We are planning to go on the Canadian side for our trip. As a result all those who take the trip must have an active passport. Your passport must not have an expiration date that goes beyond 6 months of September 29th (currently the date for the excursion). Check your passport, if the expiration date is beyond March 31, 2017, you are OK, If your passport expires within the six month period you must get a renewal now. Also if you do not have a passport you need to apply now as the processing time is lengthy (6 months).
