Special Partnership
The Consulate of Mexico in Santa Ana, which helps Mexican citizens in Orange County with legal assistance, protection services and immigration documentation, has begun distributing yet another paper.

It’s part of a program called “P.A.S.E.,” which said as one word in Spanish means “pass.” The program encourages children ages 5 to 12 to acquire a free pass, and then visit and collect stamps from 18 museums and educational institutions countywide, in some cases at discounted rates.

P.A.S.E. – an acronym in Spanish that translates to walk around, learn, amaze yourself and experiment – is designed to encourage youth to go to the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, Bowers Museum, the Nixon Library, the Santa Ana Zoo and other participating sites with their families.
