September 1, 2021 : Matt Garcia Day


 

On September 1st, 2008, my son, Fairfield City Councilman, Matt Garcia, was murdered. It is hard to believe that it has been almost 13 years since we lost Matt.

The City of Fairfield recognizes September 1st. as The Matt Garcia Day.

Matt LOVED Fairfield! Leading up to September 1st, be 1 of 100 and make a donation of $100.00 to receive your Iconic Memorabilia Shirt of Matt and embroidered STAND with FFINEST Hat and FFI♥U logo to HELP Keep Matts Dream Alive.

You can place your order here, shop.fairfieldiloveu.com, and/or purchase & pick up your orders at the FFI♥U Store, 3067 Travis Blvd, Fairfield, CA 94533

All Proceeds go to Support Youth, Help Stop Crime & Strengthen Our Communities. These are three campaign promises Matt made when he was elected.

Thanks for keeping Matt's Spirit & Legacy Alive as #WE live out Matt's campaign promises! I am so grateful for your support!

Matt's Mom, Teresa

STEM Girl Camp

The Solano County Office of Education and the UC Davis C-STEM Center will be hosting the camps. The middle school camps are scheduled for June 7-11 and June 14-18. The high school camp is set for June 21-25.

Reserved for Solano County Students Application Deadline: May 15th, 2021

The C-STEM GIRL Camps are focused on motivating girls in middle school and high school to learn computing and STEM concepts through a fun and exciting robotics-based curriculum. We hope this leadership camp will enable them to serve as leaders and inspire other young women to gain interest in science and technology through creating and joining robotics clubs in their schools and participating in the RoboPlay Competition of C-STEM Day. The camp participants are also eligible for the GIRL’s leadership award.
