On Sunday, September 15th at 2:00 pm, Ileana will be attending Scott Parker’s Eagle Court of Honor where she will present this newly minted Eagle Scout with a flag flown over the US Capitol.

The Eagle Court of Honor will take place at Ileana’s church St Thomas Episcopal (5690 N Kendall Drive, Miami).
On Monday, September 16th at 10:00 am, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen will speak at the Coast Guard Command Miami Beach in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Coast Guard Command Miami Beach is located at 100 MacArthur Causeway, Miami Beach.
Said Ros-Lehtinen, “I’m always thrilled to visit with local Boy Scouts and see firsthand the wonderful young men who strive for the best in this excellent organization. I look forward to presenting Scott with the flag flown over the US Capitol in his honor and meeting the other Scouts and their families. I’m also very pleased to be speaking at the Coast Guard Command Miami Beach. The brave men and women of the Coast Guard keep our nation’s shores safe against drug traffickers and those who seek to harm us.”
