While in Australia Garcia took part in Australian Parliament meetings, toured different schools, took classes and visited Australian icons, tile Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Opera House. “I really want to thank the district and my family who helped make this trip possible,” said Garcia, who raised nearly $7,(XX) dollars for the trip. “I lull so proud of my daughter. She has gotten to see and do so much; the trip was a great learning experience,” added her father, Sam Garcia. “It will be a journey that will last my daughter a lifetime,” he said. “I won t ever forget my experiences there,” said Garcia “Everything was different and so interesting, even the subtle tilings like asking for a “fuzzy-water” instead of a Coke ” Birthdays/Anniversaries HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO; ■ Johnny Arbuckle, 67 years old ■ Lynn Rheinlander ■ Jazinto Villarreal Sr. ■ Matthew A.
