‘Suited for Success’
Our hats are off to the men and women at Mt. Hermon AME Church in Miami Gardens, who donated more than 50 suits, some still in suit bags and others near perfect, for men who are seeking employment to look good on their job interviews.
According to Sara J. Carson, a member of the church, the donation was made last Monday to Suited for Success.
"Yes," Carson said, "we are our neighbors’ keepers in times such as these."
Temple Bat Yam, a Reform synagogue in east Fort Lauderdale at 5151 NE 14th Terr., invites the community to its "joyous and musical Friday evening services throughout July." The services will be followed by light refreshments.
Service times are 8 P.m. Fridays and 10:30 a.m. Saturdays.
Honoring the mayor
Congratulations to Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson, who was honored on Sunday during worship service with a "Mayor Shirley Gibson Day" at New Way Fellowship Baptist Church, where Bishops Billy and Catherine P. Baskin are pastor and co-pastor. The mayor who will complete her final term in August, was honored for her "impeccable leadership and unwavering dedication."
The city of Miami Gardens was incorporated in 2003 and Gibson is the city’s first mayor. "Since the incorporation of the city, we have been blessed to be led by a visionary committed to moving the city forward and building it into one of the most progressive cities in the state," said Leola Adams, a member of the church at 16800 W. 22nd Ave.
