[ARCHIVED] Florida Military Family and Community Covenant Proclamation by Councilman Stephen R. Shelley

The City of Homestead has adopted a proclamation, along with dozens of cities across the state of Florida, declaring April 17th as Florida Military Family and Community Covenant Day.

During a special presentation of the March 20th Homestead City Council meeting, Councilman Stephen R. Shelley presented to Lieutenant Colonel Frank Melgarejo, Commander of the United States Army Battalion for Miami, with a proclamation by Mayor Steven C. Bateman declaring April 17th as Florida Military Family and Community Covenant Day.

“This proclamation represents the City of Homestead and its continuing commitment to supporting and honoring all military service members, veterans and their families,” said Councilman Shelley. “We are honored to join cities across the state of Florida in our unwavering support of this proclamation.”
