Homestead, Florida – This Thursday, August 22nd , Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) has scheduled two events in Homestead that showcase her efforts to focus on all areas of her Congressional District. Below is a listing of both of Ileana’s South Miami-Dade events and the press is encouraged to attend.

On Thursday, August 22nd at 11:30am, Cong. Ros-Lehtinen will attend the Greater Homestead Florida City Chamber’s (GHFC) annual meeting and election to greet and meet participants. This GHFC meeting will take place at the Hampton Inn & Suites (2855 NE 9 Street, Homestead).

At 6:30pm, Ileana will take part in an event at Shakeys Pizza where she will reconnect with students from the Migrant Education Program that visited Washington, DC as part of the Close-Up program. The students, from Homestead Senior High School and South Dade Senior High School, met with Ileana during their DC visit and the Congresswoman was very impressed with them and the questions they asked. Ros-Lehtinen strongly believes that these students are the future of the South Miami-Dade community and she is keen in informing them about the work she does in the House. Shakeys Pizza is at 2500 NE 10th CT, Homestead.

Said Ros-Lehtinen, “I’m eager to once again meet with the students from Homestead and South Dade Senior High Schools and learn what they have done since our last meeting in Washington, DC. These young men and women are the future of South Miami-Dade and I’m honored that we’ll reconnect at Shakeys Pizza. Thank you to Cip Garza for all that he does for Homestead and the migrant community.”
