The past week has been full of fun-filled events within our City.
I kicked off the week attending the Police-Youth Engagement Training on June 10, 2019. This was a free event for our youth to make connections with our community. It was a great opportunity to reach out to our youth and show that we must continue to grow as a community. Good police-community relations are important for developing trust between police and citizens.
The Mobile School operated at Gulfstream Early learning Center. I met and discussed how we can further help our residents with Zee from the pantry. This is a free program that provides healthy food items to families in need of food assistance. Food items offered include fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, pasta, and other items. The next one is scheduled to be on July 11th at 2:30pm at the Gulfstream Early Learning Center once again. You can register by calling 754-323-4700.
The Hepburn Center host a variety of senior programs to keep seniors fit and healthy. During the meals on wheels event the Hepburn Center took this time to wish all the dads a Happy Father’s Day. The meals on wheels provide seniors with a great meal to ensure they get at least one healthy meal a day. This also gives the fellow participants a chance to volunteer and help others. Once participants register to becomes a member of the Hepburn Center they will also register for the program ‘Meals on Wheels’ offered to senior 60 years old and older. To learn more please call the Hepburn center at 954-457-1461.
