Welcome Mexican Consul Alejandra Garcia Williams!

We had a fiesta! On Wednesday, March 24th, 2010, we welcomed the new
Mexican Consul Titular Alejandra Garcia Williams and
Consul Para Asuntos Comunitarios Lourdes Chàvez to our center.

OCCTAC Board President Mary Ellen Lohnes, Consul Alejandra Garcia Wiliams, OCCTAC president Dr. Ana Jimènez-Hami
The Consuls did not come empty-handed! Many of our students had participated in the international "Este es mi México" annual children's art contest, sponsored by the government of México. Thousands of pieces of art work were sent to Mexico City where a committee of professional artist painters judged the entries. The Consuls came to OCCTAC to congratulate the students who received a certificate of excellence!

Consul Garcia Williams: "Last year, the contest theme celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the Mexican Revolution. We encourage all children ages 7 to 11 to submit their work this year as well!"
The 2010 Contest will feature heroes and battles. Click HERE to read the official release.
Instructor Cynthia Faisst and the Santa Ana Suzuki Strings Students
