Councilwoman Bailey Honors Bonnie King and Omega Psi Phi Pi Nu Chapter with Special Proclamations

Councilwoman Jenifer N. Bailey took time at the June 19, 2019 Special Presentations to acknowledge the contributions of Bonnie King and the Pi Nu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity to the City of Homestead.


Councilwoman Bailey said, “We had two presentations we wanted to make at ArtWalk because of the community theme we had going on at the event. Bonnie was recognized at Art Walk with a proclamation and I just wanted to bring her up during this one as well to say ‘thank you’ for all your hard work and helping us keep all those memories through your photographs.”


Continuing, Councilwoman Bailey noted, “Events like ArtWalk would not be possible without the financial help of partner organizations and often, most importantly, the physical help needed to organize events.” She then invited three representatives from the Pi Nu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity to join her at the front of the Council Chambers.


Councilwoman Bailey said, “There are a lot of wonderful things we have in this community, but men mentoring men and assisting our elderly are two things we definitely need to work on and these men here are doing some amazing work.”


She continued, reading a special proclamation recognizing the founding of the Pi Nu Chapter in 1971 at the Homestead Air Force Base, along with some of the Chapter’s initiatives, including a literacy program, Thanksgiving food basket distribution, Christmas toy drives and highway adoption. This year, the Chapter held its 20th Purple and Gold Ball, which supports Chapter scholarship efforts. The proclamation concluded with a statement about the group’s dedicated service and commitment to the City of Homestead.
